Fun Sheep Craft

This is a fun craft to do with your kiddos.  It does require supervising and with my two year old I had to help a lot.  But they are so cute and I just love how they look on my table.

Supplies needed:
Styrofoam egg
cotton balls
Elmer's school glue
scissors
wooden skewer
white paint
googly eyes
black paper or ribbon

Start by pulling your cotton balls in half.  Then put some glue on your Styrofoam egg and then press a cotton ball into the glue.  

We were using about that much glue per piece of cotton.

Keep gluing and adding cotton balls until it is completely covered.

Caleb didn't want to get his hands sticky with glue so he let me hold the egg, while he carefully pressed on the cotton balls.

Now for the legs.  Take a bamboo skewer and paint it white.  Then cut it apart into smaller pieces.  Cutting them to however short or tall you want your sheep to be.

Push the skewer pieces into the Styrofoam.

Then glue on your googly eyes and then a little triangle of black paper or ribbon for the nose. 

The ears are just little balls of cotton about this big.

Glue on the ears and say, "BAAAAAA!"

Didn't they turn out cute?!

I couldn't resist making a black sheep to hang out with them!

There they are in the grass, making a sweet centerpiece for my dining table. 


I had to share this picture of Simon with fuzzy, cotton fingers.  He was a little concerned.
