Step 1: Paint

Step 2: Use the Sheep Craft Template

  • Print the sheep craft template.
  • Find a section of newspaper that is just plain print without pictures or color.
  • Use the template to cut out the shape of the sheep’s head from the newspaper.
  • Also cut out 2 small rectangles that are about 2 inches long and 1/2 inch wide.

*If you don’t have access to a printer, draw the sheep’s head and cut it out.

Step 5 (Optional): Amp It Up

  • This step is completely optional, but if you’d like to pump up the craft let’s add a few more details.
  • First, use your Elmer’s glue to add some black pompoms to the top of the sheep’s head for a wooly look.
  • Then create a background for your black sheep using the markers. There is not right or wrong way to do this. Just be creative.

To make this a preschool sheep craft, just precut the newspaper pieces. Using the pompom to tap paint your sheep is the perfect way to improve fine motor skills in kids. And be sure to encourage creativity. I love seeing how every single sheep is different.
