6 Weeks of Animals - Pigs!

We had a snortin' good time for our 4th week of story time with pigs!

Interesting facts about pigs:
- pigs are very intelligent
- there are around 2 billion pigs in the world
- pigs are omnivores, which means they eat both plants and meat
- pigs use their snouts for finding food in the ground (such as truffles), and sensing the world around them

We sang:

Pigs in the Mud (Tune: Row, Row, Row Your Boat)

Roll, roll, roll around,
In the mud all day.
That is what the pigs all do,
What a way to play!

Roll, roll, roll around,
That is how they stay.
Oh, so very nice and cool,
On a sunny day!

For craft, we had some delectable grapes! Next up: dragons!
