Three Little Pigs

For our STEM project, we wanted to try building all three types of the Three Little Pigs’ houses. Their goal was to make the house that can stand up best to mom’s “wolf blowing”. But you could also pull out a hair dryer for blowing.

Supplies needed for this project:

Straws, popsicle sticks, wooden blocks, string, masking tape, and rubber bands.


For the first part of our Three Little Pigs STEM project, we made the straw houses. We made straw houses out of plastic straws. You could do this with paper or plastic straws~ whichever you prefer.  I started by just giving them string and rubber bands and straws. My son had no trouble with this, but my girls begged for tape, so we added that into the supplies.


Next, we made our stick houses.  These we did out of popsicle sticks and masking tape. IF you want to make it harder on them, make them collect sticks and tie them together with twine.


We did our brick houses out of wooden blocks. Another fun option would be LEGO Bricks. This was the quickest and the easiest house to build. We thought that was funny because in the story of the Three Little Pigs, it’s the opposite.

The Results of Our Three Little Pigs STEM Project

The straw houses were the easiest to blow.  The stick houses were second. Some of them did not even move!  The bricks houses were not moveable, just like the story. However, the length of time building them was the opposite. It took my kids a lot longer to build the straw houses than any of the others.
