Handprint Pig Craft

One of the best things about handprint crafts is there isn’t the big mess that there can be with handprint art! Instead of using paint, you’ll use paper and you won’t have to worry about little handprint around the house or classroom.

We also love this craft because besides the paper all you need are common craft supplies like markers, scissors, and glue.

That means this craft is simple and cheap!

Supplies

  • Colored card stock (in pink and peach)
  • Markers (in pink, dark pink, brown and black)
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick
  • Pencil
  • Pig template (download form located at the end of this page)
