THE SHEEP OF HIS PASTURE

I came across this sweet little sheep craft to do with the girls. Photobucket
How cute is HE???

Photobucket
First, dig out some craft paint....
Photobucket
And paint the ends of wooden clothespins to be used for legs
PhotobucketPhotobucket
Apparently in the minds of little girls, sheep should have very colorful legs.
Photobucket
Then cut out kidney bean shaped pieces of cardboard for the sheeps body.
Photobucket
Then, take a break and dance to the music.

This step is crucial to the successful outcome of your sheep.

Next, clip the clothespins onto the bottom of the cardboard sheep body and begin wrapping yarn around the body.

Finally, add lots of fun little accessories like tails, ears, eyes, and of course bows.

"Know that the Lord, He is God;
It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves.
We are His people and the sheep of His pasture. "
Psalm 100:3

OH--I absolutely love your pasture of sheep! Of course, my favorite part was the dancing break--seems like the two would go hand and hand--dancing/art. If you don't mind, I'm going to borrow for my class as we're "Little Lambs" :o) Too cute!

You are so creative and have such patience. Can I come and be homeschooled at your house?

Perfect for your Little Lambs Wendy! Thanks Nana, and yes, you can be homeschooled here too. :)

That would require my many couch cushions on the floor around me to break my fall :) We're working on our own sheep today :)
