Last night was a really fun night! I am the committee chairperson for my Relief Society Activity Committee and last night we had a “This Little Piggy” activity night. Every March, we celebrate the Relief Society Birthday Party, and this year we celebrated it in a fun, spunky way.

I made these cute piggy decorations for the cultural hall and I thought they turned out really cute! I used my Silhouette machine to make a window for each part of the poem. I made tissue paper pigs and glued eyes noses and ears on them. I thought they turned out pretty darn cute! {Decorating with “pigs” was a little challenging, because we weren’t sure how to do it!} But, I think they turned out really cute when all was said and done.

Since we used the piggy poem for our inspiration, and we had corresponding activities for each part of the poem.

This little piggy went to market: a brief (10 min) presentation on how to shop smart [by using coupons, shopping sales, when to shop…]

This little piggy stayed home: a brief (10 min) presentation on home decor on a dime {guess who got to this part!?!..ME!!} and the top ten trends in home decor this year.

This little piggy had roast beef: a delicious roast beef dinner.

This little piggy had none: a brief (10 min) presentation on making good financial choices.

This little piggy went wee, wee, wee all the way home: a French dessert {get it, wee, wee, wee} served to the ladies right before heading home. :) {AND yes, I am aware that wee is spelled OUI in french.} :)

We had a great turn out, and I hope the ladies in my ward had a good time. It is always fun to spend the day serving the ladies around me. I always walk away feeling great because the ladies come, they chat, they re-connect, they get to know each other on a more personal basis, and THAT is the most important part!

Our invitations for the event were these ADORABLE piggy cake pops that my committee made, and then we hooked our 4X6 invitation to it!this little piggy popsThis is an example of what the cake pops looked like. We forgot to take a photo, but the inspiration came from this photo found HERE.

I got to design this fun invitation for the event too! I loved the color scheme of pink, black and white!RS B DAY Poster copy This theme would be fun to use for any girls’ night activity. It was a blast!

    We did this activity last year. Our classes were a little different. Market:healthy meals. Stayed home: Organizing. Roast beef: sisters brought slow cooker recipes. Piggy had none: emergency preparedness. Wee wee all the way home: how to find happiness through adversity.
    The possibilities are endless

    Thanks for the idea. It’s adorable. Any chance you have a downloadable copy of the invitation? Also, how did you make the pigs?

      For the invitations, I Google searched the image for the “three little pigs” and the tissue paper pigs were just the tissue paper balls with the ears, eyes and nose all made by hand and glued onto the ball. Here is a link for a tissue ball tutorial! Good luck!
