Our cotton ball sheep craft is a fun farm craft for your preschooler. We've found that combining cotton balls with a decent amount of glue makes for a very child pleasing craft, and this fuzzy sheep craft is a definite favorite. Even very young children will enjoy this craft as they get to experience the texture of the cotton balls and the joy of being able to do a large part of the craft "all by themselves".

What you'll need:

How to make your cotton ball sheep craft:
  1. Print our template(s) and cut out the pieces. Trace the faces and legs onto black construction paper using a white crayon and cut out the pieces. Cut the body of the sheep out of white paper.
  2. Cover the sheep's body piece with glue.
  3. Stick the 4 legs onto the bottom of the body.
  4. Cover the rest of the sheep with cotton balls.
  5. Glue the sheep's head onto the body (on top of the cotton balls).
  6. Glue the googly eyes on the head. Glue the red yarn on the sheep's face to make a smiling mouth.
  7. Cut a small triangle out of black construction paper and glue it to the face as a nose.
