Three children walking into the woods

Once upon a time, there was a married couple who had so many children that they could not feed them all. One day they called the three youngest children to them, gave each one a slice of bread and butter, and sent them into the forest to collect firewood. The children walked far, far into the woods searching for kindling. At last they sat down to eat their bread, but when they got up to go home, they discovered that they could not find the way. They searched and searched, but they were completely lost, and without knowing it, they walked deeper into the forest with each step.
