In the last blog article we listed some Fun Facts about pigs. We also had a free download of a pig coloring page for the kids (or you) to color. In this blog we want to share some of our favorite craft activities that we found on the web that are simple and fun to do. There was so much to choose from – it was hard to make a decision!
This adorable pig craft is made totally from hearts! What a great idea for Valentine’s Day. There also are tips on how to mass produce the pieces for easy construction for a group of kids. We found this at DLTK Crafts for Kids.
P is for Pig! What a great craft – even for the littler ones. They might need some help to do it, but they’ll have fun learning about the letter p. Brought to you by Fun With Pre K.
These clothespin pigs are just too cute for words! And they even stand up! They were found at Serendipitous Discovery.
Have some spare paper lunch bags laying around? Then get ready to turn them into some pig puppets. Use our free pig paper bag puppet pattern designed by The Tucson Puppet Lady herself! It’s a great activity for the kids to color, cut out, glue and then play with.
Need a puppet with a moving mouth and makes expressions? We’ve got the pattern!
And if you are really bitten by the craft bug, you can use our Pig Puppet Sewing Pattern to make your own puppet. It is available as a digital download so you can start sewing immediately. We recommend using fleece and felt fabrics because they are inexpensive and readily available from craft stores. Customers tell us how easy our step by step patterns (with lots of pictures) are to follow especially after watching the video tutorials. In fact you can watch our free video tutorial on how to sew the pig puppet right now!
what our customers are saying:
“I love her patterns. Pattern well written and easy to follow.”
“I love how the puppet turned out. Please keep the patterns coming!”
NEXT BLOG FEATURES BOOKS AND FREE PUPPET PATTERN
In our next blog, we’ll be sharing a few books which feature pigs that preschoolers (and older kids) enjoy. The books range from fact to fiction. We’ll also have a free pattern download for a felt pig hand puppet. You don’t even have to know how to sew, the whole puppet can be made using a hot glue gun. Stay tuned to our blog to get your free download.
