2) Little Red Riding Hood

“Once upon a time there was a dear little girl who was loved by everyone who looked at her, but most of all by her grandmother, and there was nothing that she would not have given to the child.

Have your child wear that red cloak wrapped around them and make sure that they have that basket of goodies for grandma. As a parent you can even dress up as the bad wolf in order to add more fun to the idea.
