What You Need For This Paper Plate Sheep Craft
How To Make This Fun Cotton Ball Sheep Craft
I’ll now show you the simple step by step instructions to make this fun toddler sheep craft.
Step One: Gluing The Cotton Balls
Place your materials on the table and begin dabbing glue onto individual cottons balls.
Step Two: Stick The Cotton Balls To Paper Plate
Now you stick the cotton ball onto the paper plate and repeat until the inner plate is covered and fluffy. This creates the body of the sheep.
Add glue to the edges of the plate and then create a circle of cotton balls on the outside rim. Allow the plate to dry.
Step Three: Create The Sheep Head And Face
wile the cotton balls on your paper plate craft are drying, draw a circle on black card stock or construction paper and cut out a head for your sheep craft.
Now cut out ears and feet for your sheep and draw a pair of eyes. You could opt for googly eyes instead. The choice is up to you!
Your Paper Plate Sheep Craft is now complete and ready to display. This is a fun cotton ball sheep craft for toddlers and one that doesn’t use too many materials or take too much effort.
