Apple Pig Craft from Family Fun

19 Oct

I saw this craft while perusing through one of my favorite websites, Family Fun.  I am going to run out and get the supplies I need for this craft because it really is so “stinkin'” cute!  famf98appleactivities_pigTHANK YOU FAMILY FUN… I’ve stalked this website for years, but didn’t get their magazine until more recently.  If you don’t get it,  you really MUST.  A student’s parent got it for me as a holiday gift and I just love it!


Red Delicious apple
5 red gumdrops
4 whole cloves
Fruit leather or fruit roll up
Red shoestring licorice


Turn an apple on its side. Insert one end of a toothpick into a gumdrop and stick the other end into the bottom of the apple core to form a snout. Break toothpicks in half and affix four gumdrops as feet. Set clove nostrils in the nose and clove eyes above the snout.

Twist off the stem, poke a hole with a toothpick, and insert an inch-long piece of shoestring licorice into the hole to make a tail. Finally, cut a piece of fruit leather/ fruit roll up into a rectangle measuring 1 by 1/2 inch, then cut again on the diagonal to form two equal-size triangles. Affix upright triangles with small pieces of toothpick to create ears, then bend over the upper portion of each triangle to cover the spot where the toothpick shows.
