Creating these piggies is easy and fun!
What you need is:
- Few dry white beans
- Pink nail polish
- Permanent Marker – red and black.
Disposable gloves. I use for example simple latex gloves.
- Put the gloves on and place the beans on a sheet of paper or paper towel in front of you.
- Paint the one side of a bean with the pink nail polish and wait until dry.
- Afterwards, draw eyes in black and the rest – ears, nose and tail with a red permanent marker.
- That’s it! Your piggies are ready to go!
