Pig Craft

This week I have been concentrating on farm animals with Hailey.  She loves anything and everything that has to do with animals, so this is definitely a lot of fun.  There are tons of books about farm animals that we enjoy reading.  The other day we made a pig using a variety of shapes.  When I was teaching pre-kindergarten I always did this with my class.  It’s easy and cute and helps reinforce the names of the shapes. 

What you’ll need:

  • pink paper in 2 or 3 different shades
  • scissors
  • glue

Because Hailey is too young for scissors I cut everything out ahead of time.  If you were doing this with preschoolers I would recommend letting them do the cutting.

I let Hailey do all of the gluing- which she loves to do.  She always cries when it is time to put the glue away. As she was gluing the pieces I talked about the shape of the piece she was working on and encouraged her to try to say the name of the shape too.

Once she had the glue on her piece I pointed to the place on the pig where the piece should go and she did the positioning of the pieces.  I try to let her do as much of the actual project as possible.
