This cute little pig is very wiggly and and great for creating little imaginary games. Why not try making a farmyard animal for each finger.

Time: 20 minutes
Age: Under 5's, 5-10's
Level: Medium

Materials
Card
Pink and black felt tip pens
Scissors
Pink pipe cleaner
Sticky tape
Eye stickers, googly eyes or just draw your own

Method
Draw around a small lid to create a circle for the pig's head.

Cut out the circle.
Colour the circle pink, then add a nose, ears and eyes. We had eye stickers but you could draw your own or add googly eyes.
Wrap a pink pipe cleaner around a willing finger, leaving a little at the end straight.

Tape the straight end of the pipe cleaner to the back of the pig's head.

Wiggly Pig is ready to be played with. Pop him back on a finger and wiggle him about.

This little pig is great at oinking too. I'm sure your kids can make some great animal noises.
