Pink and gray or black markers
Little Piggy Feet (Kids footprint)
I’ll never forget my mom singing the five little piggy song to me when I was a kid.
In fact, I remember it so well that I, in turn, kept the tradition going and have sung it to all of my kiddos.
I still sing it to our youngest. My other three kids are getting too old for the song now, lol but our little guy placed with us through foster care loves it.
He laughs and wants me to sing it again and again.
With that said, this easy kid’s craft will make a perfect keepsake in their LifeBook, baby book, or memorable keepsake for when they are older.

First, you’ll need to clean and wash your little one’s feet.
Second, add pink washable paint to the bottom of their feet.
Be sure to get it on their toesies. 🙂
Third, turn the paper (printable) upside down.
For example, in the picture below.
This will allow you to place the footprints down on the paper easier.
Which will place the toes towards the bottom of the paper and the heel towards the top of it.
Doing this will give the pig a more realistic look.
After that, allow it to dry. It took ours about 30 minutes to dry.
Lastly, you’ll need to add the piggy’s ears, snout, eyes, and tails. I used a light pink thin permanent marker and a gray one.
This Little Piggy Footprint Craft turned out pretty cute right?!
Don’t forget to save the pin for later! 🙂
