How cute is this Toilet Paper Roll Pig Craft? Super easy to make and perfect for little kids learning about farm animals, domestic animals or the letter P.
There are lessons you can learn from any animal in the world, no matter how big or small. For instance, look at pigs. They just love playing in the mud, and gleefully roll about in it without a care in the world. Most importantly, they certainly don’t care what the other farm animals think!
Maybe it’s time for us to learn a thing or two from pigs, given how stressed we are these days, even kids! A great first step would be to start by making some fun piggy crafts – like today’s toilet paper roll pig!
This is a super easy craft and I’m pretty sure you already have everything you need to make this lying around in your home right now. Preschoolers who are learning about animals are going to love this craft, so let them take the lead on this one!
Toilet Paper Roll Pig Craft
List of Supplies:
- Toilet paper roll
- Craft paper in shades of pink
- Googly Eyes
- Scissors and Glue
How to make the Toilet Paper Roll Pig Craft:
1. Wrap the toilet paper roll in light pink paper.
2. Cut two small slits on opposite ends of the top edge of toilet paper roll, so you get two flaps – one in the front and one on the back. Fold the back flap inwards and then fold the front flap over it so you get two pointy ears.
3. Cut out two ear shapes and two tiny circles for nostrils from the light pink craft paper. Cut out two smaller ear shapes and a rounded rectangle for the snout from the dark pink craft paper.
4. Stick the small ear shapes inside the big ones. Stick the nostrils on the snout.
5. Time to assemble your little piggy! Glue the ears on the pointy ends of the toilet paper roll. Stick the snout in the middle of the pig’s body.
6. Stick on the googly eyes. You can go for different sizes for a dazed pig, like the one here. Or you can have a girl piggy by using googly eyes with eye lashes.
7. Cut out some grass and flowers using colored craft paper and place your piggies in a nice little farm!
Yes, this little guy isn’t bathed in mud, but from the looks of it, he does seem to enjoy the clean surroundings for a change! For kids learning about farm or domestic animals, this craft would go well with our Life on the Farm collage or this sheep photo holder. With World Farm Animals Day coming up on 2nd October, this would be a perfect craft to make!
