Little pig, little pig, let me come in…and play! Bring barnyard fun to a rainy day with this simple pig snout mask, or gather around two of your child’s friends to act out Three Little Pigs. Pink construction paper, a stapler, glue, scissors, a black marker and string are all that’s needed to construct this hog noise. Sharpen fine motor skills and brush up on word recognition with the accompanying story to make this well-rounded craft educational and fun.

What You Need

  • Pink construction paper
  • Stapler
  • Scissors
  • Pink yarn
  • Black marker
  • Pencil
  • White glue

What You Do:

  1. Cut a strip of pink construction paper 6 inches x 3 inches.
  2. Roll the strip into a cylinder-shape, so it’s about the same circumference as a toilet tissue roll. Staple it in place at each end.
  3. Trace around the circumference, or end of the stapled roll onto the remaining pink construction paper using a pencil.
  4. Cut on the outside edge of your line on the construction paper, leaving a bit of space between where you cut and where you drew the pencil line, to make a larger circle.
  5. Carefully glue the edge of one side of the cylinder shape and place it down on the cut circle to complete the snout shape. Allow the snout to dry.
  6. On the front of the snout, draw two oval shapes using a black magic.
  7. Cut two lengths of pink yarn, at least 8 inches each. Staple one piece of yarn to the center of each side of the back of the snout.
  8. Have a parent help you tie the yarn together behind your head, as you position the snout comfortably in place over your nose. Oink, oink!
