CRAFTivities- Sheep Shearing (Farm)

SHEEP SHEARING

This CRAFTivity was inspired by my husband and 2 books I found at the library. While I was brainstorming ideas for our theme this week he suggested a cotton ball sheep to shear. I was a little hesitant and didn't add it right on to the list until I went to the library and happened upon these books. Then I knew it was meant to be. He really enjoyed this more than I would have imagined. GOOD THINKING D!



TOOLS:
Printout or Die Cut of of Sheep/Lamb, cotton balls, glue, paint brush, cardboard (to glue it onto for sturdiness) and scissors for shearing.


STEPS:
unroll or stretch the cotton balls out
cover sheep in glue
stick on cotton pieces one at a time till sheep is covered
Glue onto cardboard (before or after) to make sheering easier

LET DRY OVERNIGHT


Sheer the sheep with scissors or pull off with fingers

We did a lot of glue / cotton ball crafts last year and Ollie really loved them. Great linking the craft to a book, too! Nice blog!

What a great idea! We have made sheep before, but I never thought of shearing them.
