Was just wondering what you used for the roundness of the pig's belly?
I don't know what Jenny uses for her pig bodies, but my kiddos have made lots of cute pigs - we use bags from loaves of bread, bagels,& English muffins - stuffed tightly with crumpled newspaper sheets and then tied at the end. Works great!I never made them fly though - great idea - maybe next year!!
To make the pig bodies, we start w/crumpled newspaper in a ball. Then we roll it up (the way they do at Subway I tell my kids) until it is the right size. Then we tape it shut and add on legs and nose w/tape and TP rolls!
Here are some of my flying pigs:http://kunstlehrer.blogspot.com/2010/01/pappmaschee-schweinerei.htmlmy pigs are with balloons...
