Twisted Fairy Tales
Imagine that you’re the wolf: How would The Three Little Pigs, The Boy Who Cried Wolf, or Little Red Riding Hood change? Spin your favorite fairytale with a twist!
1 Read a book such as The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs, by A. Wolf. Notice how the tale is told through the wolf’s eyes. Reread your favorite fairy tale. What other characters could tell the story from THEIR viewpoints? How would the story change?
2 Using Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencils, write your twisted tale. Spread the action across several pages of construction paper. Change your mind? Just erase!
3 On white paper, draw pictures to illustrate your twisted fairy tale. Color them with Crayola Fine Line Markers. Cut the pictures out with Crayola Scissors. Using Crayola Glue Sticks, attach your drawings to the book pages.
4 Design a book jacket. Punch holes through the pages. Hold everything together with brass paper fasteners.
