Materials Needed to make a Paper Plate Pig:
- Paper Plate
- Cotton Balls
- Pink Paint
- Paint Brush
- White Glue
- Pink Pipe Cleaner
- Pink Construction Paper
- Black marker
- Googly Eyes
I am all about using what we have on hand. Which was white paper plates and white cotton balls. So instead of going to in search of Pink Cotton Balls and Pink Paper Plates, we decided to paint our own.
While the paper plates dried, the kids painted the cotton balls. You could glue them first and then paint, either way works. The kids then squeezed dots of glue onto their plate for the paint covered cotton balls.
I love the little painty fingers!
The kids wrapped the pipe cleaner around their finger to make the perfect Piggy tail. Added a cute little nose, ears and google eyes. Voila an adorable little pig!
I love how puffy and cute these little pigs are!
