Peppa Pig is a British preschool animated TV series, created, directed and produced by Astley Baker Davis, and published by E1 Kids. Since first airing in May 2004, the series has been broadcast in over 180 countries. The characters include families of different animals, with the main family that of Peppa Pig: Daddy Pig, Mummy Pig, Peppa Pig herself, and George Pig, the little brother. The story centers on family and school, and because it’s made for early childhood education, the series uses a simple, playful visual style and fun dialogues that children can relate to. After years of broadcast on children’s TV channels, Peppa Pig has become extremely popular, and the Chinese version of its theme song has also been a hit among children.
I, myself, have two kindergarten-age daughters, and watching Peppa Pig is an important part of their daily life. As they know their father is good at paper folding, they are continually asking me to make them a Peppa Pig. I have already made several versions and have been trying to improve the results. For this challenge, I’m still using an A4 sheet of printer paper without any cutting and gluing. This version has a new addition that the previous versions did not have: a pigtail down the back. The finished product is flat and does not stand on its own. If one side of your paper is white, you can paint it when it’s finished. The video tutorial is linked below: please give it a shot!
