Ted has decided that he wants to decorate his door with animals. So the last few days we’ve been busy crafting some funky foam creatures. This cute little pig is our favourite so far and has taken centre stage to make our diy foam pig door sign. Ill be sharing our other foam animals at somepoint soon so keep your eyes open for those if you’re looking to make a little collection!
You will need
First you will need to cut out the base shape of your pig’s body. Draw a circle and add two rectangles for the legs as shown in the picture above.
Cut out a smaller circle for the pigs head and glue it down on the body.
Give your pig two pointy pink ears and a oval snout.
Now to give your pig his cute little face! Glue on two googy eyes, two nostrils and a smiley mouth. Also draw or stick two little hooves at the bottom of his legs
To make your pig’s curly tail; twist your pink pipe cleaner around a pencil and then stick it in place at the back of your pig and he is finished!
Why not glue your pig to a strip of card or foam and make your very own door sign?
If you've followed the blog at all you will know that my son is mad about all things under the sea. He loves learning about the ocean environment and its inhabitants though his books and we read some of national geographic kids ultimate oceanpedia almost every single day. He loves watching documentaries together too and more often than not hes the one teaching me something new! It was actually him who gave me the idea for this cute paper plate jellyfish
Today I'm back again with another pipe cleaner craft! We had so much fun making these yesterday and came up with some really fun little ideas. I think though that these pipe cleaner snail magnets are my favourite of the day. They're just so adorable and once you get the hang of them they're really easy to make too. We have a whole garden full of them on our fridge right now!
How sweet are these little pipe cleaner apple magnets? It took us a couple of tries to perfect them but now weve got them figured and wanted to share them with you all! In fact, we've got so good at making them that it only takes us a few minutes on each. My son recently Made some sweet apple and worm cards for his teachers as due to current situation he wont be going back to school this year and he wanted to make extra to gift them too. Such a sweet little idea!
