Ever since my kids started playing AYSO soccer, we've always had a goal bank for the team. This is a receptacle where each parent inserts change (and grandparents put dollar bills) whenever the team scores a goal. The money we collect is used for the team celebration at the end of the season.
We've used oatmeal containers, cardboard boxes, and even a flat soccer ball we cut a hole into one year. This year, Matthew's team let us create the goal pig because our coach was new to coaching and no one really knew what the goal bank was for. We went all out!
Of course I let Matthew lead the design, since it was his team after all. He chose this super shiny silver Chrome Duck Brand Tape to cover the pig! Check out our video tutorial of how we created this pig:
Here are a few more pictures of the details on the pig. I hope you”ll consider creating one for your team this soccer season as well!
Nice butt, right?! LOL We used soccer stickers from my scrapbooking stash to make him have some team spirit! After covering the pig with Duck Brand Tape, we cut an opening for the slit in the top of the piggy bank using a craft knife. Gotta make sure they have a way to put money inside!
And then we used letter stickers to hot glue the team name onto the side ofthe goal pig. My favorite part is the pennies for the eyes!!!
