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?
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!
How sweet is this cute little monster card craft? They’re great for almost any occasion and are really sweet and simple to make. My son always says he is a cheeky little monster so these were the perfect craft for him to make and gift!
You will need
White and black card
Take your piece of card and fold it in half. Draw a circle onto your card, making sure you leave a gap in the circle along the fold line as you can see above.
Cut out your circle (again making sure you dont cut along the gap in the fold line, Otherwise you’ll end up with two separate circles rather than a card) snip the bottom of your card to give it a flat edge to stand up on.
Next you’ll need to cut out the circles to make your eyes. You can see above how each inner circle is slightly smaller than the last.
Cut out a big smiley mouth and one big tooth.
Glue your monster’s cheeky face down in place and your card is finished! Now all you need to do is write your special message inside your card and gift it to a loved one.
