In the last blog article we listed some Fun Facts about cows. We also had a free download of a cow coloring page for the kids (or you) to color. In this blog we want to share some of our favorite craft activities that we found on the web that are simple and fun to do. There was so much to choose from – it was hard to make a decision!
This paper plate cow is just adorable and is so simple for even the littler ones. We found this at Housing a Forest. The googly eyes are so much fun and the smile completes the picture!
This cow made from a footprint is really a work of art! This was from A Latte’ with Ott, A.
Danielle’s Place always has the cutest crafts! This beanbag cow is just too cute to not include even though I usually try to list very simple crafts. Check out her other cow crafts while you are visiting the site.
Have some spare paper lunch bags laying around? Then get ready to turn them into some cow puppets. Use our free cow paper bag puppet pattern designed by The Tucson Puppet Lady herself! It’s a great activity for the kids to color, cut out, glue and then play with.
Need a puppet with a moving mouth and makes expressions? We’ve got the pattern!
And if you are really bitten by the craft bug, you can use our Cow Puppet Sewing Pattern to make your own puppet. It is available as a digital download so you can start sewing immediately. We recommend using fleece and felt fabrics because they are inexpensive and readily available from craft stores. Customers tell us how easy our step by step patterns (with lots of pictures) are to follow especially after watching the video tutorials. In fact you can watch our free video tutorial on how to sew the cow puppet right now!
what our customers are saying:
“I love her patterns. Pattern well written and easy to follow.”
“I love how the puppet turned out. Please keep the patterns coming!”
NEXT BLOG FEATURES BOOKS AND FREE PUPPET PATTERN
In our next blog, we’ll be sharing a few books which feature cows that preschoolers (and older kids) enjoy. The books range from fact to fiction. We’ll also have a free pattern download for a felt cow hand puppet. You don’t even have to know how to sew, the whole puppet can be made using a hot glue gun. Stay tuned to our blog to get your free download.
