How adorable is this fluffy little paper plate sheep craft? It’s so easy and cheap to make and is great for keeping the kids entertained on rainy days like today! my 3yo loved sticking on the cotton wool balls and my nearly 6yo did an amazing job cutting out the shapes and making his own paper plate sheep.
Here’s what we used
Cotton wool balls
How to make this paper plate sheep craft
Start by covering the paper plate in glue and then covering it with the cotton wool balls.
Cut out a mushroom shape from the black card to make the sheep’s head. Glue two large Googly eyes onto the sheep’s face and then using your glue or some double sided tape, glue the sheep’s face on to the middle of it’s body.
Cut out two black rectangles for the legs and glue them onto the bottom of the paper plate. Once dry the sheep is finished and ready to display! This craft is great for grownups to make with toddlers and pre-schoolers!
Living out in the countryside we’re lucky enough to have a whole host of animals living in the fields near our house. The kids love going on walks around the area and spotting all the local wildlife and farm animals. At the moment my little girl is particularly fond of sheep, so we decided today to make something sheepy! We really enjoyed making this cute yarn wrapped sheep craft and hope you do too!
Here’s what we used
A piece of cardboard (we used a bit of old box)
White and black paper
How to make this yarn wrapped sheep craft
Grab the piece of cardboard and cut out a cloud shaped piece.
Take the loose end of yarn and secure it firmly to the back of your cloud shape using tape/glue.
Wrap the yarn around the cardboard shape in varying directions until it is well covered as well as nice and puffy! Snip the remaining yarn off and glue the loose end down on the back of the sheep shape.
Cut out a mushroom shaped head and add a face to the front of it. Next cut out two rectangle legs and glue the legs and head to the front of the sheep. Your yarn sheep is finished! Aren’t these just adorable?!
