About This Article
To make an origami pig, take a square piece of paper and fold the top and bottom edges over so they meet at the center. Fold all four corners over to the central fold, then reverse them. Fold them back to the front so your paper has two triangular ends. Fold the points in so they meet at the center to make a square, then unfold them again. Unfold the corners and flatten them along the creases to create four triangles. Fold the whole paper in half again along the central fold so that the triangles are on the outside. Fold the inner half of each triangle in half to make the pig’s feet. Fold the outer half of the triangle on the left side upwards so it’s parallel to the “leg,” then unfold it and turn the triangle inside out along the crease you just made. Fold the inner point out to make the tail. Fold just the tip of the outer right-hand triangle over, then unfold it and push the crease inward to make the snout. Did this summary help you? Yes No

Easy Paper Pig Craft
We made another farm animal craft, this time around we are showing you how to make an easy paper pig craft!
As with most of our craft ideas for kids, we made sure this one is on the frugal side and you probably have all the materials you need at home already.
Pigs are wonderful animals and by our human standards one of the most intelligent in the animal kingdom. They certainly deserve some crafty spotlight!
We already have a simple and fun pig craft idea on website but have a tons more coming out soon (as you know, pigs are awesome!).
This simple paper craft is a great project for all ages – with some minor modifications you can make the craft easy enough for preschoolers and kids in kindergarten. We are sharing our tips and tricks to make this craft “younger kids” friendly in the tutorial. School age children will be able to make the craft as is.
Ready to make your own easy paper pig craft? Let’s make one (or a dozen).
What you need
- pink construction paper (2 letter sheets or 2 A4 sheets)
- scissors (you can also cut strips of paper with a paper trimmer – perfect for teachers setting up the materials for kids or for birthday parties)
- black marker
Optional: wiggle eye stickers or goggly eyes
Watch the Video Tutorial
Or follow these step by step folding instructions.
Cut strips of paper.
You will need 4 strips of paper for the body and 4 strips of paper for the head. Our strips were as wide as a “finger”. For the body we cut the strips of pink paper across the length of the paper and for head we cut them across the width of a sheet of paper.
If you need to modify this craft for younger kids, we recommend they only do the head part and use 2 wider strips of paper. Wider strips of paper are easier to handle for younger kids and as there is less gluing and cutting involved they won’t loose their focus.
Fold the papers in half – no need to make a crisp crease, this only helps with “finding” the middle in the next step.
Take the long strips.
Apply glue in the middle of one strip and glue another on top of it at a right angle.
Glue another one in between the first two and then another one at a right angle of that one.
Do the same with short ones.
Now take two ends of the same pink paper strip, loop them into a circle and glue them together at the top.
Repeat with all strips of paper until you get a paper ball.
Make the ball with short and long strips of paper.
You just made the body and the head of your pig craft.
Glue the small ball on top of the large ones. Let the glue dry.
Your Paper Pig Craft is Almost Done
Cut a circle for the snout out of pink paper.
Draw nostrils with a black marker.
Glue the snout on the head part of the paper pig craft.
Draw eyes or glue on two wiggle eye stickers (or goggly eyes).
Cut two more strips of paper for the front legs.
Glue them on the pig.
Cut a tail and glue it on the back.
Also cut two ears and glue them on top of the head.
Cut a circle base for the pig, this will make it easier for your paper pig craft to stand on it’s own.
Cut two legs and glue them on the base.
Glue the pig on the base.

Paper plate pig
We recently visited a local play farm and the kids had the most amazing day playing there and learning about the different animals and their needs. We’ve been making a lot of animal crafts recently but we noticed we hadn’t really made any farmyard ones. Their favorite animals at the farm were the giant pigs so we decided to make something piggy first and this wiggly paper plate pig craft is just so adorable!
Here’s what we used
- Paper plate
- Pink paint and paintbrush
- Googly eyes
- Black marker
How to make a paper plate pig
Take the paper plate and paint it pink before popping it aside to dry.
Cut out a large pink circle for the pig’s head. Cut out two pink triangular ears and two smaller inner ears. Glue them together and then onto the top of the pig’s head.
Cut out a large oval for the pigs snout and glue it down centrally on the circle. Add two small oval nostrils, a semi circle mouth and two small round eyes.
To give the pig it’s fun little wobble, Cut out two long thin strips of paper and glue them together at a right angle. Take turns folding the strips one over the other and glue together at the end to make a spring.
Glue one end of the spring to the centre of the paper plate and the other to the back of the pig’s head.
Cut out two rectangle legs and two black square trotters. Glue a trotter at one end of each leg and then glue the other end of each leg onto the back of the paper plate.
Take a pipe cleaner and wrap it around a pencil to make a curly tail. Glue or tape the tail in place and once dry the paper plate pig is finished!

Origami, the ancient Japanese art of paper folding, has fascinated people for centuries. With just a simple square sheet of paper, anyone can create beautiful and intricate designs – like this adorable origami pig. In this step-by-step guide, we’ll walk you through how to fold your own origami pig.
What You’ll Need:
– A square piece of paper (preferably pink or patterned)
– A marker or pen for details (optional)
Step 1: Prepare your paper
Choose a square piece of paper, ideally around 6 x 6 inches. If it’s double-sided with different colors or patterns, make sure the side you want to be visible is facing down.
Step 2: Fold the paper diagonally
Fold your square paper diagonally in half, so that you have a triangle with the longest edge at the bottom.
Step 3: Fold the bottom corners up
Take both bottom corners of your triangle and fold them up towards the top corner. This will create a diamond shape.
Step 4: Fold down the top flap
Fold the top flap of your diamond shape down so that it meets the bottom edge. This will form a smaller triangle at the top.
Step 5: Create the head and tail
Turn your origami over and fold both sides of the small triangle upwards, making two triangular flaps that stick out. The larger one on the left will be the head, while the smaller one on the right will be the tail.
Step 6: Shape the head
Fold the tip of the head flap inward so that it’s hidden underneath. Now fold a small part of that inward again to make a crease for later.
Step 7: Shape ears
Next, fold up small triangles on either side of the head to create ears.
Step 8: Curve out legs and feet
To make legs, fold the bottom left and right edges of your origami pig slightly inwards. Then fold the bottom corners outward to form small feet.
Step 9: Finishing touches
Turn your origami pig around – you should now have a substantial body with a cute piggy face! To add more defining features, use a marker or pen to draw eyes, a snout, and any other details.
And there you have it – a lovely little origami pig that you can display on your desk, give as a gift, or add to your collection of origami animals. Origami is an enjoyable and creative way to spend your time and express yourself artistically, as well as being a fantastic stress-reliever. So practice your paper-folding skills and create an adorable little pig (and other characters) to brighten up your day!

How to Make a Pig With Paper Mache
Paper mache projects are ideal to do with your child one on one or in an art class. You can make pinatas, masks or decorative animals. A pig can be a great starter craft since it has a round shape, similar to a basic balloon. Once you become more experienced, you can create other animals by attaching multiple balloons. A main component of the paper mache process involves layering newspaper strips on an object. The nontoxic ingredients and simplicity of this project will allow your child to have hands-on involvement.
Things You'll Need
2 Toilet Paper Rolls
Pour two cups of water into a large mixing bowl.
Video of the Day
Add in a half cup of flour. Mix thoroughly, slowly adding in a few drops of white glue. Keep stirring until there are no lumps in the mixture.
Blow up a balloon. Use a balloon large enough so it can work as the main body of your pig.
Lay newspaper down on the surface you will work on and place the balloon on top.
Cut toilet paper rolls in half so you have four tubes. Tape each securely to the bottom of your balloon. These will act as the pig's feet.
Bend or cut cardboard into two triangles. Tape these to the top of the balloon. These will be the pig's ears.
Rip pieces of newspaper into large strips.
Soak newspaper strips one at a time in your paper mache mixture. Take each piece and begin to cover the balloon and cardboard. Press down on each piece so it is smooth and flat. Don't be afraid to get your hands a little dirty.
Let your project dry for at least 12 hours.
Time to Decorate
Paint your pig its base color. Use pink paint for a traditional pig or let your child get creative by making the pig a different color.
Draw a snout and eyes on the pig's face using dark-colored paint.
Use a pipe cleaner to poke a hole in the backside of the pig. Don't be afraid of popping the balloon. It already may have deflated. The balloon is no longer important once your paper mache mold is dry. Bend the pipe cleaner so it stays in the pig and twist the end so that it is curly, representing the pig's tail.
Allow the paint to dry. Begin your clean up and in a few short hours, your pig will be ready to enjoy.
In addition to paint, you can also glue rhinestones, glitter and other decorations onto your finished pig.
Small children should not blow up balloons. Be sure there is an older teenager or adult monitoring the paper mache project.
Paper mache can be messy. Make sure your child is wearing a smock or old clothes while working on this project.

This pattern is not intended for children because cutting out the pieces and taping them together would be frustrating for them. However, children would love to paint the pig if an adult puts it together for them.
And it would be an adorable on the wall in a child’s room.

All Infinite Craft recipes and combos
Infinite Craft is a logic-based crafting game that challenges you to create as many things as you can with basic ingredients, from simple elements to complicated structures, ideas, and concepts.
In a new game of Infinite Craft , you start with just Water, Fire, Wind, and Earth, and you combine these items simply by clicking and dragging them on top of each other in the play space. You can also drag two of the same item together to create something new, like combining Tree with Tree to make a Forest.
The game is slowly rising in popularity, and the wave of players is discovering more and more recipes. Considering the game is “infinite,” it might be impossible to find every recipe. Still, if there’s something you specifically are trying to craft, check out our list of recipes in Infinite Craft , sorted alphabetically.
As a note, this list is still a work in progress and likely will be for some time. There are also several items that can be made in multiple ways.
Every Infinite Craft Neal Fun recipe and crafting combination
Here are all the crafting recipes in Infinite Craft we are currently aware of. As noted above, this is a growing list that will be frequently added to over time.

Create a form in Word that users can complete or print
In Word, you can create a form that others can fill out and save or print. To do this, you will start with baseline content in a document, potentially via a form template. Then you can add content controls for elements such as check boxes, text boxes, date pickers, and drop-down lists. Optionally, these content controls can be linked to database information. Following are the recommended action steps in sequence.
Show the Developer tab
In Word, be sure you have the Developer tab displayed in the ribbon. (See how here: Show the developer tab .)
Open a template or a blank document on which to base the form
You can start with a template or just start from scratch with a blank document.
Start with a form template
Go to File > New .
In the Search for online templates field, type Forms or the kind of form you want. Then press Enter .
In the displayed results, right-click any item, then select Create.
Start with a blank document
Select Blank document .
Add content to the form
Go to the Developer tab Controls section where you can choose controls to add to your document or form. Hover over any icon therein to see what control type it represents. The various control types are described below. You can set properties on a control once it has been inserted.
To delete a content control, right-click it, then select Remove content control in the pop-up menu.
Note: You can print a form that was created via content controls. However, the boxes around the content controls will not print.
Insert a text control
The rich text content control enables users to format text (e.g., bold, italic) and type multiple paragraphs. To limit these capabilities, use the plain text content control .
Click or tap where you want to insert the control.
To learn about setting specific properties on these controls, see Set or change properties for content controls .
Insert a picture control
A picture control is most often used for templates, but you can also add a picture control to a form.
Insert a building block control
Use a building block control when you want users to choose a specific block of text. These are helpful when you need to add different boilerplate text depending on the document's specific purpose. You can create rich text content controls for each version of the boilerplate text, and then use a building block control as the container for the rich text content controls.
Select Developer and content controls for the building block.
Insert a combo box or a drop-down list
In a combo box, users can select from a list of choices that you provide or they can type in their own information. In a drop-down list, users can only select from the list of choices.

If you want to protect only parts of the document, separate the document into sections and only protect the sections you want.
