Step One:

Locate and print out the FREE pig template in our Freebies Library.

You can print as many as you like!

Step Two:

Color in all of the different parts of the pig with crayons or colored pencils.

Choose a traditional pink color, or be unique and make a purple or polka dot pig.

Step Three:

Once the pig is all colored in, carefully cut out the pig parts along the dotted lines.

Young children may need a hand with this, or simply some scissor supervision.

Step Four:

Assemble the pig by applying glue to each piece and carefully connecting the parts.

Start with the head, add the ears, then the body, tail, and so on. 

Then glue on the pig’s features, such as the eyes and the snout.

If you’re opting for silly googly eyes, you can put them on for a more lively appearance. 

Step Five:

Allow children to showcase their individuality by adding personal touches.

An idea would be to make a hair bow out of construction paper.

Maybe design and cut out a tutu for the pig to wear.  

Or perhaps, kids would like to put shoes on the pig.

There are so many fun ways that little ones can make the pig their own!
