Scrap Craft: Piggy Ears for your Toddler

At our house, Dress Up is a favorite game.  While Miss Dot has plenty of costumes in the form of dresses, tiaras, wands, tutus, etc., sometimes you just want to be a pig.  We decided to get creative and make some pig ears one day, and we made it all from things we had around the house (including scraps!).

What you’ll need to make your own pig ears scrap felt craft:

  • Pink felt
  • White batting
  • Headband
  • Scissors
  • Glue (we used hot glue, but if you’re more patient, your kiddo can totally do this with white glue)

Scrap supplies for this toddler craft.

What I Learned the Hard Way: We were totally making this up on the fly, so I didn’t think to measure the ears out in advance; and they’re a little on the big side.  One of my friends suggested that maybe we were playing Olivia from the children’s books.  Yeah…that’s…that’s totally what I was going for!
