There’s something that kids love about barnyard animals like the pig, so we’ve put a fun collection of pig crafts together for you to make during your crafting time!
Maybe kids love them because they’re pretty and pink (when they’re not covered in mud, of course).
Perhaps it’s their adorably weird snort that kids find so endearing. Whatever the reason, they’ll have a blast with these pretty pig projects.
These pig crafts are perfect for teachers and homeschoolers who are working on farm animal units.
You’ll find simple crafts using everyday materials, from pig puppets to piggy banks and paper plate piggies.
So, gather the pink paint, pink paper, and pink everything else. It’s time to get piggy with it!
