This morning I was feeling a little sorry for myself and in a bit of a 39-weeks-pregnant-messy-house-fighting-a-cold funk. After my daughter went down for her nap, my four-year-old and I pulled out some books to read, together. One of his choices was this:We’ve read it a number of times and had seen that there were instructions, in the back, on how to make your own pig! H is in a stage where he wants to “make” everything that he sees, and “build” all kinds of diggers after reading our digger books from the library and so this fit perfectly. I thought I’d break out of my feeling-sorry-for-myself funk by trying a little crafting with him.Here are the instructions to make your own pig (or whatever it ends up being).
