The Three Billy Goats Gruff

Use the stencils below to cut out the characters and objects from the story The Three Billy Goats Gruff. Add a river of blue felt under the bridge and tell the story. I used fabric paint to add the detail to the felt pieces. The pieces are larger than in my scanned picture as I resized the image to fit on my page. Enjoy :-)

The Three Billy Goats Gruff

Once upon a time there lived 3 Billy Goats Gruff. The billy goats had no more food on their side of the of the meadow, but across the bridge was a meadow full of sweet grass to eat. The problem was that under that bridge lived a very mean troll who would not let them cross "his" bridge. One day, they were so hungry that the billy goats decided to try and cross the bridge.

The littlest Billy Goat Gruff was the first to cross. Trip-trap, trip-trap, trip-trap.

The sound of his little hooves woke up the sleeping troll and he bellowed, "Who is walking across my bridge?

"It is only I" said the littlest billy goat gruff in his very small voice.

"I'm coming up to eat you!" said the angry troll.

"Oh, don't bother with me," said the little goat. "My brother is coming very soon and he is much bigger and tastier than I"

The troll grumbled and stomped, but he let the littlest goat cross the bridge and went back to sleep.

Soon the bigger Billy Goat Gruff started across the bridge. Trip-trap, trip-trap, trip-trap.

The sound of his middle sized hooves woke up the sleeping troll and he bellowed, "Who is walking across my bridge?"

"It is only I" said the middle-sized billy goat gruff in his middle-sized voice.

"I'm coming up to eat you!" said the angry troll.

"Oh, don't bother with me," said the middle goat. "My brother is coming very soon and he is much bigger and tastier than I"

The troll grumbled and stomped, but he let the middle-sized goat cross the bridge and went back to sleep.

Soon the biggest Billy Goat Gruff started across the bridge. TRIP-TRAP,TRIP-TRAP,TRIP-TRAP.

The sound of his large hooves woke up the sleeping troll and he bellowed, "Who is walking across my bridge?"

"It is I, The Great Billy Goat Gruff" said the biggest billy goat gruff in his very loud voice.

"I'm coming up to eat you and I am not waiting for another brother!" said the angry troll.

Up came the troll. The biggest goat put down his head and ran forward. He threw that troll right off the bridge into the river where the current carried him away. The troll was never seen again and the 3 Billy Goats Gruff were able to cross the bridge to enjoy the sweet grass on the other side of the meadow any time they wanted.

The End :-)
