Paper Piglet with Template

It is quite easy to craft this cute paper piglet due to its simplicity and the template that we offer. All you need to do is to cut out the template along the straight lines, fold the paper along the dotted lines and glue all the parts.

We will need:

  • Pink cardboard;
  • Piglet template;
  • Moving eyes;
  • Regular pencil, glue stick, scissors

You can also use a colored paper – it will be even easier for kids to work with it. However, such a piglet won’t be as robust its cardboard “mate”. It is not a problem, if you have no moving eyes at hand. This piggy will look cute even you draw the eyes with a marker pen. Alternatively, you can cut out white paper circles and draw pupils in the middle.
