Children will also have lots of fun playing the Little Red Riding Hood games. One of the games goes up to 10 and one up to 15. Children roll a die and help to get Red Riding Hood to Granma’s cottage. Not only will children improve their counting, they will also improve their subitising skills with the use of a die and their number recognition while counting along the game board.

Little Red Riding Hood EYFS Activities – Personal, Social and Emotional Development

Children need to make up a healthy basket of food and an unhealthy basket. This will provoke lots of discussion about food that is good for us and food that isn’t. It also links nicely to toothbrushing. I wonder if the wolf brushes his teeth!

Little Red Riding Hood EYFS Activities – Creative Activities

There are lots of little red riding hood early years activities online. BBC School Radio also do a Little Red Riding Hood music programme. It is aimed at Key Stage 1 but some of the activities are simple enough for your Early Years children and you could certainly teach the children some of the songs. They also do an animated story in 7 short video clips which can be played over a series of time.

Another of my favourites is ‘Little Red Riding Hood‘ by Debbie and Friends.
