We have the perfect activity for your little ones – a paper plate pig craft! Not only is it adorable, but it also helps your child practice their fine motor skills and creativity.

To make this craft, you will need:

  • Paper plate
  • Pink paint
  • Colored card stock
  • White card stock
  •  Black Sharpie
  • Glue stick
  • Scissors

To start, have your child paint the paper plate pink with a few thin coats. While they are waiting for the paint to dry, they can cut out the pig’s eyes, nose, ears, and hooves from the colored and white cardstock using their own creativity. 

Once the paper plate is dry, have them glue the parts together. They can then use the black sharpie to draw a mouth just below the nose, and glue the hooves to the back and bottom of the paper plate.

Ta-da! Your little one has just made their very own pig craft. They can even personalize it by adding their own piggy details or decorations.
