Take your roll and chop it down to your desired height. Next take your pink card and cut out a strip the same height as your roll and wide enough to wrap completely around it. Glue the card around the roll.
From the same colour cut out two large pig ears and then cut two slightly smaller inner ears from a different shade of pink. Glue the pieces together to make the ears and then stick them in place inside the top of the roll.
Add two eyes on the front of the roll, just below the ears
Now make an oval snout and add two pink nostrils. Glue it on to the middle of the pigs face and use your marker to give the pig a mouth
Cut out a long thin strip with a point at the end to make a tail. Wrap the tail around a pencil to make it curl and then glue it onto the back of the roll to finish your pig! Isn’t he cute?
Living out in the countryside we’re lucky enough to have a whole host of animals living in the fields near our house. The kids love going on walks around the area and spotting all the local wildlife and farm animals. At the moment my little girl is particularly fond of sheep, so we decided today to make something sheepy! We really enjoyed making this cute yarn wrapped sheep craft and hope you do too!
Here’s what we used
A piece of cardboard (we used a bit of old box)
White and black paper
How to make this yarn wrapped sheep craft
Grab the piece of cardboard and cut out a cloud shaped piece.
Take the loose end of yarn and secure it firmly to the back of your cloud shape using tape/glue.
Wrap the yarn around the cardboard shape in varying directions until it is well covered as well as nice and puffy! Snip the remaining yarn off and glue the loose end down on the back of the sheep shape.
Cut out a mushroom shaped head and add a face to the front of it. Next cut out two rectangle legs and glue the legs and head to the front of the sheep. Your yarn sheep is finished! Aren’t these just adorable?!
We recently visited a local play farm and the kids had the most amazing day playing there and learning about the different animals and their needs. We’ve been making a lot of animal crafts recently but we noticed we hadn’t really made any farmyard ones. Their favorite animals at the farm were the giant pigs so we decided to make something piggy first and this wiggly paper plate pig craft is just so adorable!
Here’s what we used
Pink paint and paintbrush
How to make a paper plate pig
Take the paper plate and paint it pink before popping it aside to dry.
Cut out a large pink circle for the pig’s head. Cut out two pink triangular ears and two smaller inner ears. Glue them together and then onto the top of the pig’s head.
Cut out a large oval for the pigs snout and glue it down centrally on the circle. Add two small oval nostrils, a semi circle mouth and two small round eyes.
To give the pig it’s fun little wobble, Cut out two long thin strips of paper and glue them together at a right angle. Take turns folding the strips one over the other and glue together at the end to make a spring.
Glue one end of the spring to the centre of the paper plate and the other to the back of the pig’s head.
Cut out two rectangle legs and two black square trotters. Glue a trotter at one end of each leg and then glue the other end of each leg onto the back of the paper plate.
Take a pipe cleaner and wrap it around a pencil to make a curly tail. Glue or tape the tail in place and once dry the paper plate pig is finished!
