Make a Pig!

Materials needed:

  • Paper plates
  • Pink cupcake liners
  • Pink paint
  • Colored construction paper
  • Glue

    What to do

    Step One  Have your child paint two paper plates pink and let them dry.

    Step Two  Take a pink cupcake liner and glue it to the middle of the plate. This will be the pig's nose.

    Step Three  Draw two circles, about the size of a paper cup on pink construction paper.

    Step Four  Cut the circles out and glue one to the top of each side of the paper plate for the pig's ears.

    Step Five  Cut out eyes and a mouth from construction paper and glue them in place.

    Step Six  Align the face of the pig on top of the other colored plate so that they overlap and glue it in place.

    Step Seven  Draw and cut out a tail and legs and glue them to the rest of the body.

    Keep it hot (or cold)! No one likes cold soup or warm, wilted salad. Use a thermos or ice pack in your child's lunch box to help keep his lunch fresh until it's time to eat.
