In the last blog article we listed some Fun Facts about sheep and lambs. We also had a free download of a sheep 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 cotton ball sheep craft is so cute and even a two year old would have fun feeling the texture of cotton balls and dipping in glue to make this almost all “by themselves.” We found this at AllKidsNetwork.com.
We found this adorable yet simple to make lamb which is made from heart shapes at First-School.ws. There’s also lots of ideas of how to extend the craft into learning opportunities.
Easy Peasy and Fun always has the cutest crafts for little ones. This Paper Sheep Craft is so cute! And it is a way to recycle those drinking straws!
Have some spare paper lunch bags laying around? Then get ready to turn them into some sheep or lamb puppets. Use our free sheep 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 Sheep 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 bird 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 sheep or lambs that preschoolers (and older kids) enjoy. The books range from fact to fiction. We’ll also have a free pattern download for a free sheep 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.
