I love to do pigs in storytime. Lately I've seen several cute ideas on how to create pigs for a flannelboard. I found a really cute notepad a few years ago and laminated some of them for my flannelboard rhyme (which I wrote & dedicated to my fellow storyteller, Sue--not sure she thought it such an honor though).
I like to use this when I read BED HOGS by Kelly DiPucchio and Howard Fine.

They bounded off together and then there were none.
