Instructions for Little Farmer Hand Print Piggy Activity

  • Draw an outline of your child’s hand on a pink coloured paper. Cut it out.
  • Cut a circle out of the pink coloured paper for the head. Ask your child to stick it on the pig’s body.
  • Draw the hooves for the pig at the edge of the fingers.
  • Help your child finger-paint the hooves with pink paint.
  • Ask them to dip the thumb in paint and imprint on the pig’s face.
  • Cut out the ears. Help your child stick them to the face.
  • Let them finger-paint the eyes, nose, and mouth of the pig.
  • Cut a thin strip of pink coloured paper and roll it. This is the pig’s tail.
  • Stick it at the rear end of the pig. Your child may play with the pig’s tail.

The piggy is ready to play!

Go ahead and create the parent pigs — make an outline of your hand(s). Encourage your preschooler to help you out. Show your little one the craft and prompt them to identify what it is — describe the sound this animal makes, where it lives, etc.

As your child completes this activity, they enhance their language. Seeing their hand transforming into a piggy helps develop their creativity.
