I am always trying to incorporate some art in our themes. Our kids benefit so much from process art and crafts and frankly, my kids’ engagement levels sky rocket when we do art.

This art activity for preschoolers is inspired by the Three Little Pigs as we will be decorating some houses with the same materials as the pigs.

This preschool activity will look on story detail recall and visual art skills.
