My Mommy Tip for this week really isn't mine at all. I'm totally stealing this one right out of a Martha Stewart magazine. Hey, if you're going to steal a tip you may as well steal from the best, don't you think?
Here are some cute little piggy banks you and your own little piggies can make in the time it take to huff and puff and blow a house down!
Here are the exact instructions from Martha Stewart:
Have a parent use a utility knife to cut a slit in a mini water bottle; make sure it's large enough to get a quarter in. Cut a hole in bottom of bottle for removing money. Wrap a long, wide strip of colored paper around middle of bottle; mark slit and cut out. Use double-sided tape to secure paper to bottle, lining up slits. Use two colors of paper for ears; cut small sections for insides of ears, then glue on larger pieces. Bend back bottoms of ears; glue to bottle. Use a hole punch to cut eyes from black paper and nostrils from pink. Glue in place. For legs, glue beads to bottom of bank on paper band.
