How to Make a Piggy Bank

Historic Waco

After a fun and successful week of Summer Camp, we wanted to share one of our favorite crafts with you! The campers loved using their imagination and creativity to create their own piggy banks! Thursday our campers explored  Economics and Agriculture. They enjoyed a petting zoo, made their own money, and created duct tape wallets. By integrating these themes together, our campers learned how agriculture and economics go together like peanut butter and jelly! We thought a piggy bank would address both topics in a cute and fun way for the campers and by the end they learned about saving money and facts about pigs!  Below are the instructions on how to create your  very own piggy bank with your kiddos out of a water bottle! A perfect activity for the summer!! 

(Note: For this craft we used Craft Smart Satin Acrylic Paint in the color Pink Chiffon..We found Acrylic paint worked the best when applying the paint to the water bottle)
