Resting Pig Paper Plate Craft

Resting Pig Paper Plate Craft for Kids from www.daniellesplace.com

What you will need:

Two dinner sized paper plates (heavy duty is best, but the cheap ones will work)

One paper bowl

Four 5-ounce Dixie Cups

Construction Paper or Card Sstock

Pink and Black Paint

Low Temperature Glue Gun or Stapler

Pink Pipe Cleaner

 

How to make:

1. Make the four legs first. Cut the side seams (the part of the cup that has been glue together) out of the cup and then squeeze the sides together rolling the sides over each other. Glue or staple the sides together. You want to make the top part of the cup much smaller. Do this for all four legs. Make a crease on both sides of the legs at the top so that the seams are on the bottom. Cut about one inch down on each side at the creases and slide them onto a dinner sized paper plate that is set upright so that the seams of the legs are facing down. Glue or staple them to the plate.

Paper Cup Craft

2. Make a tail for the pig out of the pipe cleaner and staple it onto the same paper plate.

3. Turn another dinner sized paper plate upside down and glue it on top of the plate with the feet.

4. For the head, cut two slits down the side of a paper bowl. Bring the sides of slits together and glue or staple them making two darts at about where the sides of the mouth will end.

Paper Cup craft

5. Cut out two ears from construction paper or card stock and glue them to the back of the bowl.

6. Glue the bowl to the top of the paper plate as shown.

7. Paint the pig pink and the bottoms of the feet black.

8. Draw eyes on a piece of card stock, cut them out, and glue them to the head. Draw in the nose and mouth.

Three Little Cajun Pigs by Mike Artell

Three Little Cajun Pigs by Mike Artell

Your children will love this classical Three Little Pig story told from the Cajun perspective. Children are introduced to French words and Cajun cuisine and dialect in this humorous lyrical story. The delightful illustrations depict the style and rhythm beautifully.

Read this story several times before you attempt to read it to your child. The pronunciation and Cajun dialect takes some getting used to. But you will find it is fun to read once you catch on.
