Here’s my version of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. After doing some research into the story’s origin, I discovered that my suspicions were correct: Goldilocks is a little hoodlum.
Once upon a time there was a little girl named… (draw it out, ask the kids who it is)
>Put up Goldilocks<
She was walking in the woods, came across a home
>put up home<
(Uh. I don’t have a picture of the home! Well you’ll see the flip side of it later on but basically it looks like a house.)
and like any good girl would do- she broke in.
Now, who’s house do you think this was?
>kids answer, put up bears<
The first thing she came across was their breakfast table. And on it were three bowls of
>put up porridge<
So, like any good little girl would do, she dug in.
After her too hot, too cold and just right breakfast she went into the living room and found three
>put chairs up<
And so as any good little girl in someone elses home would do, she jumped on their furniture.
The first chair was too
>don’t…really do anything. It doesn’t flip.<
Big. And the second chair was too
But the third chair was juuuust right.
Until she broke it.
>Flip to broken<
After her big breakfast and exhausting exercise rocking in chairs, Goldilocks went upstairs and found 3 beds. So, like any good tired little girl, she decided to take a morning nap.
The first bed
was too tall. >flip<
She tried the second bed
and found it was a water bed.
Now, do you remember who’s house this is?
>Bring back the three bears<
They came back home and were shocked to find that someone had picked the front door’s lock. Instead of recklessly rushing in they wisely waited outside and called the police.
>Bring out police<
They found Goldilocks fast asleep. They escorted her back home and explained what happened to Goldilocks’ mother. The Bears decided not to press charges as long as Goldilocks promised never to trespass on other people’s property ever again. And she didn’t.
>flip house to pigs<
So there ya have it. It’s not perfect, I wish I had a better idea for the first two chairs, for instance. Also, the original idea was to have the entire thing take place in an ENORMOUS felt house that would have three sides. But that was way too complicated. Maybe another day.
Also look how cute is sleeping Goldilocks?
You can hardly tell there’s a warrant out for her arrest in five states.
