Themed family fun – Pig week

Piggy bank

Welcome to pig week!

This week we have made paper plate pigs and cupcake pigs and we have had loads of fun.

Paper plate pigs – These are so simple to make and so much fun.

All you need is:
  • Paper plate.
  • Pink paint and a paintbrush.
  • Pink paper.
  • Black pen.
Just paint the plate completely pink. Cut a circle of pink paper for the nose and colour in two black dots, cut two small dots and colour in black for the eyes and cut out two triangles for the ears. Then stick all the pieces to the plate to make a pigs face. You will not need any glue as the paint is still wet it will stick when it dries.
