Easy Origami Pig Face
We haven’t shared a super duper easy Origami Kids Project for a little while.. having recently pulled together our Origami for Preschoolers subsection, as well as our Educational Benefits of Origami, I thought it would be nice to have a go at a new project! Today we share the super easy Origami Pig Face. Similar to the oh so popular Origami Dog for Preschool, this is a nice and easy basic folds origami project that young kids can quickly learn and hopefully enjoy! We love easy Pig Crafts for Kids.. and this little Piggy would make a great addition to any 3 Little Pigs Fairy Tale Craft or even Chinese New Year and the Year of the Pig 2019!!!
Origami Pig Face – Materials
- A square piece of paper we like to cut down A4 paper into roughly 15 x 15cm (you can get two squares this way)

Origami Pig Step by Step Instructions
Creating “guide lines” for your origami pig
Begin by folding two diagonals on your square piece of paper – open up. You should have a cross running across the square.
The basic Origami Pig Face shape
Move the paper so you have a “diamon” with a straight line running down the middle.
Bring the right hand point into the middle.
Repeat with the left.
Now fold the Origami in from top down to the bottom (along the middle fold).
Secure all your creases!
Making your paper pig’s ears and mouth
Now it is time to fold the Paper Piggies ears and mouth piece.
Fold down the top right hand corner to make an ear.
Repeat with the left hand corner.
Fold up the bottom towards the centre of the face for the mouth piece.
Take one piece of double folded paper and fold down for the “snout”.
Finally, decorating our paper pig face
Finally with a pen add facial features!
