Three Little Pigs
Total Time 1 hour Ages preschooler

These cute little piglets, sweet enough to win the heart of the big bad wolf, are so cute, they look like they just stepped out of a fairy tale. (The directions below are for one costume.) 

What you'll need

  • 1- by 2-foot piece of pink polar fleece
  • 3 pipe cleaners
  • Double-sided tape
  • Two 9- by 12-inch dark pink felt rectangles
  • Baseball cap
  • Overalls
  • Pair of pink socks
  • Black permanent marker or fabric marker
  • Pink shirt
  • Pink face paint
  • Rubber pig nose (sold at many party stores)

How to make it

  1. Cut out and attach a pair of pink fleece pig ears to the top of the baseball cap with double-sided tape. Accent the pig ears by taping darker pink felt triangles to the fronts. Add a curly pig tail to the seat of your piglet's overalls by coiling the pipe cleaner around your finger and stretching the coil out into a spiral.

  2. Transform the pink socks into cleft pig hooves your child wears on her hands by drawing a triangular hoof line on each one with a black permanent marker or fabric marker. Color your child's cheeks with face paint and have her put on her pig nose.

  3. Supply your three little pigs with their building materials. Tie one length of yarn or twine around a bundle of sticks and another around a handful of straw or raffia. For bricks, tie together a few small rectangular tea boxes covered with red duct tape.
