|Our Daughter's First Piggy Bank|
My Mom got our daughter her very first piggy-bank! How special is that?
I had several piggy banks during my childhood. Two of them were a standing piggy in pink and green. I also had a Nesquick can that my Mom, my Uncle, and I decorated together and made it into a piggy-bank.
The latter was a really fun and special moment for me. I had that can for years! My Uncle drew Minnie Mouse on it, my Mom painted it purple, and I decorated it with glitter. Every now and then we still talk about that project we did together....and it was ages ago!
So now my daughter has her first piggy bank! She's still too little to decorate it or do anything with it, but she understands it's hers and that it's not a toy. It's to look at and and "feed" her.
Here are the 'before' pictures:
- Pre-made bows
- Hot Glue Gun
you can find bows like these at Wal-Mart, Jo-Ann, or Hobby Lobby
- I cut the bows to fit the piggy's ears:

The whole project / makeover took less than 15 minutes! I enjoyed putting it together for my daughter during her nap time!
