A couple of weeks ago while my husband and I were cleaning the floors in preparation for a party we were hosting, we sent the kids outdoors to play. After about 30 minutes I went outside to see what they were doing. On their own, without any help from us, they had set up a crafting station where they were busy turning ball pit balls into Bad Piggies.
More recently, I noticed that they were still playing with these, but they had been building structures out of toilet paper rolls that they had cut up. They placed their bad piggies (King Pig and Moustache Pig) on the structure and launch Angry Birds (balls) at them.
My husband and I were absolutely floored that two 6 year olds had not only thought to do this, but that they had built this game without any help or input from either one of us.
What they used:
- Ball pit balls
- Coloring pencils
- Googly eyes
- Paper rolls
They began by cutting pieces of paper and coloring them in to glue to the balls. Miss M made King Pig and Flynn made Moustache Pig, which he decided to add googly eyes to. To make sure they were making their Bad Piggies correctly, they had opened up an Angry Birds game on their phone to use as a reference.
They then cut up paper rolls to create a structure to place their pigs on to launch balls (Angry Birds) at.
