How to make a year of the pig craft
Start by creating a curved edge on your brown paper. This is to make the mud you pig will be playing in.
Then draw the simple shapes, used to make your pig, on your pink paper. You will need an oval for the body and head, two triangle ears, a small oval for the nose, four small ovals for the hoves, and a rectangle for the tail.
Once those are all cut out it’s time to start assembling.
Glue down the body and head.

Draw a couple of dots to the nose for his nostrils.
Using your scraps, create a strip of paper and accordion fold it.
Glue one side of the accordion down to the head. Then add glue to the other side to his snout.
Do the same thing to create his legs and hoves.
Glue on his curly tail.
Last, but not least, draw on his eyes.
