L.O: To build a house!

We all know the story of the three little pigs.  Attached is a copy for you to read together if you like. Which materials do you have at home that you could use to build your own house for a pig to hide in?  Be as creative as you like and use what you can find at home.  It will need to be strong, safe and waterproof in case it rains! You could test your house using a hairdryer or watering can. Think about what we have been learning about this week.  Also consider which materials would not work and why.

I would love to see some of your creations!
