De tre bukkene Bruse

For over a hundred years children have loved listening to the Story of the Three Billy Goats Gruff. In our reading about Norway this was definitely a story we included and yesterday we made some “cork trolls” to remember the troll from this popular tale.

I almost titled this post “A Troll Wedding” as we have two cute little trolls of the opposite sex, but the wedding has not yet taken place and I didn’t want to be presumptuous.

I found this fun craft on FamilyFun.com and it was a little easier this time to work with corks after we had a bit of practice with our Estonian deer. First, we glued two corks together, then we attached googly eyes, beads for a nose, pom-poms for arms and legs, ribbons for a belt and tissue paper for the body and hat.  This definitely required a bit of help from me and I worked one on one with Tallinn and Addie which was a bit easier.

The Happy Couple
