We’ve been having fun with our farm unit, reading about different farm animals and doing a few kid crafts along the way.
This simple pig craft had my little farmers smiling all the way to the farm.
Simple crafts like this one make learning more fun for young kids.
You could use this pig craft for a farm unit, like we did, or as a craft for the letter “P.” If you are working on a farm unit, you might also want to check out our Vowel Farm Activity or Sight Word Reading Farm Game.
Start with an 8 inch square of pink construction paper.
To create the pig’s ears, fold the top corners of the square down, towards the square’s center.
Flip the pig over and fold the bottom corners in towards the pig’s back.
Cut two rectangles, approximately 2 inches wide each, out of pink paper. Glue them to the back of the pig, over the corners you just folded over. These will be the pig’s legs.
Tape a small piece of curled pink ribbon to the back a the tail.
Have your child draw a face for their pig, using crayons, colored pencils, or markers.
For extra fun you might want to use wiggly eyes for the pig craft.

Oh that is an adorable pig and love all the shapes
Such a great idea for teaching kids in a fun manner. I love it. Thanks for sharing it. I have no artistic ability when it comes to drawing, so my pig would probably come out looking like a Halloween monster. Thanks for the easy steps on how to make it.
They had fun with all the farm animal crafts we did… But these pigs were definitely cute!
