A Fox, Chicken and Sack of Grain

You have a fox, a chicken and a sack of grain. You must cross a river with only one of them at a time. If you leave the fox with the chicken he will eat it; if you leave the chicken with the grain he will eat it. How can you get all three across safely?

Fox and (little) chicken

Take the chicken over first. Go back and bring the grain next, but instead of leaving the chicken with the grain, come back with the chicken. Leave the chicken on the first side and take the fox with you. Leave it on the other side with the grain. Finally, go back over and get the chicken and bring it over.

Take the chicken across in the boat then get the fox take it across leave the fox but go back with the chicken! (only one in the boat) drop the chicken off (where it started and get the grain in the boat leave it with the fox and go back for the chicken. At no point did you leave chicken and fox or grain and chicken for me he should get a bigger boat
