How We Did It

DIY Piggy Bank
Turn a plastic container that you are finished with into a piggy bank by taking off the original wrapper and cutting a slit in the lid. I used a drink mix container and cut the slit in the top with a knife before we started.

This is the first time we've worked with washi tape. It is so easy to move around and she loved all of the designs and colors.
DIY Piggy Bank
We decorated our bank with stripes, but there are so many ways you can decorate your container to make it into a bank that matches your child's style. You could use small pieces to make a mosaic design, Xs, squares, or get fancy and make a chevron pattern.

She was so proud of her bank and wanted to put her coins in it right after she finished. I think the washi tape really made it into a cute, decorative bank for her bedroom!
