I originally made these to use for my United Kingdom story time this summer. The kids recited the traditional nursery rhyme "This Little Piggie."
I've seen several good felt pigs on previous #FlannelFridays. I wanted to get the most use out of my pigs, so I used brown craft paint and a foam brush to dirty up one side. Apparently, I was a bit too zealous in my application because the paint bled through to the other side. I'll be making another set of pigs to use as the clean ones.
These pigs can be used for the following story time themes: nursery rhymes, pigs, farm animals, opposites (clean and dirty).
