Making a sheep can be a useful no matter what you plan to use it. It could be for a bulletin board, a 3-D farm scene you're creating or a story time project. Using the inexpensive paper plate to make a sheep craft is easy for small children. In fact, this craft comes complete with a scenery for the sheep as well.
Things You'll Need
- Paper plate, dinner size
- Crayons, especially black
- Cotton balls
- 1 wiggly eye, medium size
- Hole punch
Trace a child's hand on the center of the paper plate. Let the child color this hand print with black crayon. Don't worry if the child goes out of the lines just a bit. It won't make a difference since cotton balls will be added to the hand print a few steps below.
Hold the paper plate so that the hand print has the fingers pointing toward the bottom. The fingers will be the sheep's legs, and the thumb will be the face.
Add scenery on the paper plate by coloring blue skies above the hand print and green grass just below the sheep's legs. Add other features as you wish or have room for.
Glue the wiggly eye to the thumb of the hand print for the sheep's eye. Let the child glue cotton balls to cover up the rest of the sheep's body, leaving the legs exposed.
Punch 2 holes at the top of the paper plate. Thread some yarn through the holes and tie in a knot. Now the child can hang her sheep on a doorknob or anywhere else she likes.
