Pig noses are adorable decorations made from recycled egg cartons. Each pig nose has a custom-designed personality depending on how it's accessorized. This is a great exercise for little ones to practice fine motor skills.

What You Need:

  • Recycled egg carton
  • Pink Tempera or acrylic paint
  • Googly eyes
  • Glue
  • Pink construction paper
  • Markers
  • Decorating Materials: chenille sticks, raffia, yarn, sequins, etc.

What You Do:

  1. Help your child cut out individual cups from the egg crates. Cut out as many cups as she would like to make pig noses.
  2. Have her paint all of the cups with pink paint. Allow to dry completely.
  3. Ask her to cut out two pink triangles for her pig's ears and glue them in place from behind.
  4. She can now glue on the googly eyes to create a personality for the pig nose.
  5. Have her create unique features for her pig nose. We used chenille sticks twisted and cut for glasses, a construction paper bow, and raffia glued on for hair.
