Elephant and Piggie our some of our favorite characters from Mo Willems books. If you’ve seen our Pigeon and Duckling Felt Story Board, you know we’re huge Mo Willems fans.
When my son discovered those pigeon books, he fell in love with reading and now at 9 years old, he still loves reading them with his sister. They love the silliness and craziness of Pigeon’s outbursts.
With so much technology surrounding our kids, I truly appreciate it when they can get into a real book.
That’s how we were introduced to Mo Willems and then we had to read his other books too. If you’ve met Elephant and Piggie, they’re up to the same kind of troubles and make normal activities so much more fun.
Enter the We Are in an Art-ivity Book!, the activity book for Elephant and Piggie. It’s filled with creative drawing activities that make it fun to use this book.
I’m so worried the kids will destroy the binding of the book because they’ve been using it so much. There are dot to dot puzzles, secret code puzzles, coloring pages, pages to tear out and make into games. It’s a whole mess of fun with Mo Willems’ humor splashed onto each page so you can expect the same kind of fun from his books.
Paper Plate Piggie Supplies

Paper Plate Piggie Craft Directions
- Cut out triangles as Piggie’s ears and glue them to the back of the paper plate.
- Glue the pink tissue onto the face covering as much as you can.
- Cut out two ovals for the eyes and glue them on.
- Cut out a larger oval for the snout and glue it on.
- Cut out pink tissue paper that is the same size as the snout with two small slits in it and glue it onto the snout.
- Cut out a triangle and round out the edges for Piggie’s mouth.
There you have it– your own paper plate Piggie. It’s a super simple craft but my daughter loved adding all of the tissue paper and making a mess of the squares I cut out.
My daughter has already asked to do Elephant next. She can’t wait.
