Little Red Riding Hood is heading through the forest to visit her grandma and deliver a basket of goodies. She is tricked by a wolf who pretends to be her grandma, and the wolf gobbles her up! Thankfully, for Grandma and Little Red, a woodcutter comes to save the day.

How to Assemble the Little Red Riding Hood Puppets

- If you are using the black and white version, color the puppets.

Little Red Riding Hood Story Retelling Activity
This set of puppets is a fantastic way for kids to retell the story of Little Red Riding Hood.
Read a gingerbread man story and then let your student act out the story. We created a simple stage with a box (the flat kind that holds 12 cans), a wooden rod, and some red fabric.
If you laminate the background scene that comes in this printable pack, you can easily tape and remove it from the box. Then you can use and reuse the stage with other fairy tale puppets.
Students can act out the traditional story, or they can have fun putting their own unique twists into the story; they could even add some original puppet creations. Encourage them to have fun and to be creative.
Little Red Riding Hood Stories for Kids
