Updated: Jan 12

FREE IDEAS FOR EASY CRAFTS AND ACTIVITIES WITH FAS PAINTS, INKS AND DYES


​Paper mache is a lot of creative fun. These right pink pigs are easy to make and, once painted with bright colours, look fabulous in kids’ rooms or around the classroom. It is so much fun, and everyone seems to create something different and unique.


You will need:

: Large balloons

: Paste or a PVA glue is good.

: Several newspapers or packs of tissue paper

: Pipe cleaners

: Thick art brushes

: Egg cartons

: Use a plastic table top, or you can cover a table with a plastic sheet.


Let's get started:

  1. Blow up your balloon to the size you want your animal body to be.

  2. Tape or rest the balloon on a mug or jar.

  3. Tear your newspaper or tissue paper into small strips and stick them onto the balloon using glue or paste.

  4. Once you've added 3-4 layers, leave the balloon in a warm place until it dries and goes hard.

  5. Add legs by cutting out the individual egg holders from an egg carton or hollow tube from empty toilet rolls.

  6. Paint and decorate your animal as you choose. Be creative and try bright colours. Allow to dry.

  7. To make a "Piggy Bank". Using a craft knife to cut a money slot in the top.


TIPS: 

  • A black marker is good for making eyes and other markings.

  • Make sure that you have the pig balanced to stand up without falling over.

  • Pastes are better than PVA.

  • Sometimes, you need to leave it to dry overnight and harden.


Share, enjoy, and have fun.
