DLTK's Crafts for Kids
Paper Plate Pig Craft

Paper Plate PigWhether you decide to make just the face or expand the project to make the whole thing, this cute paper plate pig makes a great craft project for kids.  You can make it for a Three Little Pigs, farm animal, color pink, letter P theme or just for fun.



If you don't have pink paint, you could cut up 1 inch (ish) squares of pink construction paper or tissue paper and glue those to the paper plates (like mod podging) instead of painting.

We used styrofoam plates as it's what we had in the house.  BUT, the paint didn't stick very well and flaked off easily so we couldn't play with the pig *wail*.  If I had it all to do again, I'd recommend using paper plates that aren't too glossy on the bottoms.
