Egg Carton Pig

Follow these directions and you can create your own little piggy using a couple of egg carton cups and a few basic craft supplies.

  • Age Guideline: 6 Years and Up
  • Time Required: 30 minutes (Does not include drying time)

The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.


Materials Needed:

To make this cute pig, start off by cutting a two-cup section from an egg carton, leaving the cups attached. Bend the egg carton cups towards each other so they are rim-to-rim. This will make an oval shape. Glue the the rims together and let dry the glue dry.

Trim off any rough edges around the section you glued so you have a nice oval which will now serve as your pig's body. Paint the egg carton oval pink so it resembles a pig. Let the paint dry.

Use the supplies I have listed above or whatever materials you have on hand to add the details to your pig. I made a snout using craft foam, ears and a tail using chenille stems, and wiggle eyes. I also painted on the nose holes. Use your own imagination to make your pig unique.

Let and glue or paint dry and display your pig with pride.
