Make! Your own piggy bank

January 20, 2015

We all need to save a bit of pocket money at the start of the new year, and what better way to help kids save than with a piggy bank to store their pounds in – made at home with love and care.

You will need:

Balloon, papier-mâchè paste, newspaper, pin, scissors, glue, egg carton, pink paint, paintbrush, some adult supervision and 2 days to finish!

There's double the fun on the activity worksheet as you can also make your own papier-mâché turtle friend.
