What You'll Need

How We Did It

Recycled Piggy Bank
Clean an empty food container and remove the labels. You will also need 4 bottle caps (from water bottles).
Recycled Piggy Bank

Paint the container and bottle caps. After they're dry, an adult should cut a slit in the container's top, where the coins will drop in.

Recycled Piggy Bank

Make the lid of the container the pig's nose by adding two black circles with a permanent marker. Use the glue gun and glue on the googly eyes. We glued ours onto the edge of the lid. If you don't have googly eyes, you can use a permanent marker to draw them on.

Recycled Piggy Bank
Cut triangles or half circles out of craft foam to use as the pig's ears. Use the hot glue gun to attach them.
Recycled Piggy Bank
Curl a pipe cleaner for the pig's tail. Attach it to the bottom of the container with the hot glue gun.
Recycled Piggy Bank
For the pig's feet, attach the bottle tops to the bottom with the hot glue gun.
Recycled Piggy Bank
Let it dry and you are ready to start saving! You can make your bank into any animal using this same process. A cow, a dog, or even a caterpillar would be fun.
