Create the base mask for the paper plate pig
With a pencil, draw two circles for the peephole of the mask.
To make things easier, you may use any round object to trace a circle in the mask.
Cut along the outline made to make the peephole.
You may use a cutter if you find it more manageable. Just be very careful when handling sharp objects. Ask an adult to help, and do not let small children use a cutter on their own.
Here’s a tip: Cut a small slit at the center to make it easier to cut. Insert the scissors on the slit, then start cutting along the outline.
The peephole of your mask is finished! Time to paint!
Paint the paper plate with a light pink color.
Mix a dash of pink to white paint to make the skin color of the pig.
