Do you love doing hand print crafts with your little ones? Maybe you’re like me and you’ve even kept a few to look back on and reminisce about when the kids were little. This adorable hand print sheep craft is one that I am definitely keeping.
Hand print crafts are always popular with toddlers and preschoolers. This sheep craft was the perfect companion to our hand print chick craft.
Hand Print Sheep Craft
- Craft Paper
- Cotton Balls
- Craft Glue
Trace your child’s hand on craft paper and cut it out. I originally planned on using black paper for the sheep’s bodies, making them look like the real thing. But I am a firm believer in letting kids own their craft, and my daughter wanted a pink sheep.
The thumb will become your sheep’s head, and the other 4 fingers will be legs. Draw an eye, and if desired a smile and nose, on the sheep’s head.
Rip up cotton balls into 3-4 pieces each (my daughter loved doing this), and glue them onto the palm portion of the hand print to make the sheep’s wool. Let your sheep craft dry and then hang it up for everyone to enjoy.
Of course, no girl sheep is complete without a bow, so Peanut added one to each of her little sheep.
These hand print sheep make a cute spring craft. They are also a fun toddler or preschooler Easter craft
Have fun crafting with your little one this spring!
