These are the Papier Mache Piggies we made for our school art show. I got this adorable idea from a second grade teacher at my sons school. We blew up a balloon and taped Dixie cups to it for the legs and snout and cardboard triangles for the ears. We mixed equal parts flour and water in a bowl, dipped strips of paper into the mixture and then covered the pigs. We only used one layer and that seemed to be enough. We mixed pink and white to create the color for our pigs and then painted them. I hot glued on a pipe cleaner tail when they were dry.
Here are the other First Grade Eric Carle themed murals from our art show this year.
