Minipig Play Date - or - A Fun School Holiday Project

No.3 grandson is passionate about his real life guinea pigs
Percy and Jasper
 naturally ;)
he found some Minipigs in his
Christmas Stocking.
His comment was
"Wouldn't it be neat if we did a
Miniature Guinea Pig Play Date Scene,
so we did.
Of course, in real life, boy guinea pigs
mostly prefer to have only one male friend
but Minipigs get on splendidly in larger groups ;)

While I worked on the play pen
Grandson made the Pigloo

Piggies love new experiences.
Percy and Jasper did some excited zoomies
and then settled down to the serious business of
filling their tummies.
Cheryl and Kevin both being elderly chaps
thought the pigloo looked comfy
and strolled over to take up residence
and as for young Alf,
after some youthful popcorning,
(which is another thing excited piggies enjoy)
he did what he always does,
he teased everyone.
That's him trying to fit 3 piggies inside a two piggie pigloo.

We used mat board 3 3/4" square for the base,
1/8" square wood for posts and coffee stirrers for rails,
some sort of fuzzy fabric for the grass,
mat board, light card and 1/8" dowel for the pigloo
and raffia as miniature oaten hay.
