Muddy Pigs

Paper Plate Pigs
Glue pink cotton balls to small paper plate. Add ears, eyes, and snout from construction paper or felt.

Toilet Paper Roll Pigs
Make pig snouts from toilet paper rolls cut in half and paint pink or glue pink construction paper around it. Punch holes in sides and tie on yarn or elastic.

Use corn, wheat, hay, oats, barley, and other grains that farm animals eat to sort and/or make a collage.

Buttermilk Chalk Picture
Brush a piece of cardboard with 2 to 3 tablespoons of buttermilk or dip chalk in buttermilk. Create designs using colored chalk.

Make a barn out of a large cardboard box. Have the children help paint it. When dry, the children can play in it.

The Quacking Duck
1 plastic cup, preferably yellow
1 yard of thick cotton cording
1 piece of sponge
black permanent marker
small piece of yellow felt

1. Make two holes, one inch apart, at the bottom of a plastic cup.
2. String thread through each hole and knot ends together, leaving a 3-inch tail on the ends.
3. Using the remaining tail, tie a sponge to the string.
4. Lightly dampen sponge an d wrap around top of strings.
5. Pull sponge firmly down string to make a quacking noise.

Little Lamb
Small plastic cup, a L’eggs pantyhose egg, or a plastic deli container
Large bag cotton balls
Four miniature spring-action clothespins
Paintbrush and white paint
Black marker
Black pom-pom
Black felt
Googly eyes
Spread glue all over the cup and cover it with a coat of cotton balls. Paint four clothespins white and color the bottom tips (the part you squeeze) with black marker. Clip clothespins at even intervals around the bottom of the cup to form legs.

Glue a black pom-pom into position as the head, then glue on two ears cut from black felt. Attach googly eyes to the head–and don’t forget to add one last cotton ball as a fluffy tail.
