Did you know that today is National Pig Day? This event, which is celebrated on March 1, was started in 1972 by two sisters, Ellen Stanley and Mary Lynn Rave. According to Mary Lynn, the purpose of National Pig Day is “to accord the pig its rightful, though generally unrecognized place as one of man’s most intellectual and domesticated animals.”
In case you need something to do today, here are some ideas for you.
Make pig tails by cutting a pink circle around and around toward the middle and then taping it onto the back of your pants.
Make a pig ear head band.
Make pig snouts to wear out of empty toilet tissue rolls.
Make a 3 Little Pigs scene out of straw, craft sticks, etc.
Make pigs out of pink clay.
Have the children make pink thumbprints on a piece of paper and then make the prints into pigs.
Cut pig shapes out of pink construction paper and let the kids add some brown finger paint (mud).
And how are you going to celebrate this wonderful holiday?
