Paper Cup Pig

Oink, oink time to play with your farmyard friends.


Paper cup
Pink tissue paper
Pink pipe cleaner
Pink construction paper
White paper


To begin, take your tissue paper and cut a long rectangular piece. Wrap this piece around your paper cup completely covering the outside. Tape or glue the tissue paper so it won't shift. Flip your cup upside down and set aside. This will be your pig's body.

Next cut out some fun pig ears, eyes, feet, and a cute pig snout. You can use your own imagination or the templates provided at the address below.

Cut the feet, ears, and snout out of pink construction paper. Take a piece of white paper and cut out some cute pig eyes.

Next take your pink pipe cleaner and curl it into a coil, leaving about 2 inches of it straight. this will be your pig's tail.

Now let's assemble your pig! Tape or glue the ears, eyes, and snout to the front and sides of the pink cup. Use the picture as a guide.

Tape the coiled pig tail to the back of the cup so it sticks out.

Next tape or glue the pig's feet to the inside of the cup so that they stick out and you can see them.

Now decorate your pig further with crayons. Add more features and decorations, maybe even a cute pig name.
