Pigs are big in children’s literature! Choose a favorite porker, maybe from Charlotte’s Web, and make a colorful paper maché model.
Read <EM>Charlotte's Web </EM>by E.B. White or other books in which pigs are characters. Research information about these animals. How are your ideas about pigs changing as you learn more? How realistic are the fictional portrayals?
Cover a table with recycled newspaper. Tear additional newspaper into short, thin strips. Mix two parts of Crayola® School Glue with one part water to create a thin mixture for paper maché.
Crumple up recycled newspaper into a ball. Dip strips of newspaper into the glue mixture. Apply damp strips to the ball, overlapping them as you go. Cover the ball with at least two layers of newspaper. Dry completely, which may take several days, depending upon temperature and humidity.
Glue additional body parts to the ball, such as a snout, legs, and tail. Use corks, recycled plastic bottle lids, or recycled film canisters for the snout and legs. Cover them with more paper maché if you wish. A curled chenille stem works well as a tail. Push it slightly into the firm paper, then apply glue to the entry point. Cut ears from felt, construction paper, or scraps of fabric. To stiffen fabric, apply a coating of the glue and water mixture used for the paper maché. Dry.
