More pictures to come later this weekend! Half of them are finished, but I wanted to get a few more supplies now that our no-spend challenge is over!
We colored a section of an egg carton pink, punched holes in the sides, and strung a piece of yarn though it to make a “pig nose.” We did use a permanent marker, but I don’t recommend it! A pink crayon works just as well, and you don’t have to worry about marker all over your hands!
You can also add some paper or egg carton ears to a headband!
We had this pig from our set of Lacing Animals, so I set it out for the girls to use. It doesn’t look like these are being made anymore, but this Lauri Dot-to-Dot Farm Animal Lacing set by Lauri looks good, too.
I made a pig from toothpicks and marshmallows to show the girls, and they wanted to make one, too! Here’s mine…
I wrote the numbers 1-10 on the bottom of cupcake wrappers with a marker. I had my daughter put them in order. Then…
I gave my daughter kernels of unpopped popcorn. She placed the correct number of kernels in each “feeding trough”. I put all the supplies into a plastic bag to use another day!
