The Prodigal Son 
Toilet Paper Roll Craft

Luke 15:15  And he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country; and he sent him into his fields to feed swine.

Luke 15:16  And he would fain have filled his belly with the husks that the swine did eat: and no man gave unto him.


  • Toilet Paper Roll
  • Tape
  • Scissors
  • Pig Template (colored or black and white)
  • Crayons and Markers - if you print the black and white one out

Print the pig template out. Color the pig with crayons and markers if you printed the black and white one. Have the child cut the pig head, feet, tail, words, and big square out. Wrap the big square around the toilet paper roll. Tape in the back. Then tape your pig head to the front. Tape his arms to the front of "The Prodigal Son" square and tape it to the front too. Add his little feet to the bottom and his tail to the side so it sticks out.

Teach the kids the bible story on The Prodigal Son. Use our Prodigal Son Lesson to go with this. We have matching materials like a bookmark, maze, writing paper, and more to go with our lesson. Make up some  "Corn Husks and Mud" snack (Pig Slop) for them to go along with this.
