Here we have 30 crafts to inspire you this season too. Lots of different sheep ideas – some for the kids, some for you, some for you AND the kids!
Happy Spring Crafting!!!!
Sheep Craft Ideas from Red Ted Art
Let’s start off this Easter crafts collection with lamb crafts that we have made here on Red Ted Art over the years. You can see how my crafts “grew up” with my kids.. starting of with super simple sheep crafts, when they toddlers and preschoolers to more “technical” sheep corner bookmarks etc when they were old!
I adore these super simple Paper Plate Rocking Sheep – they combine different textures, and art materials – crayons, stickers and paper! Don’t be put off, you can basically work with “what you have” and adapt the design to suit your needs. We also made these in class with Reception (4-5yrs olds) and they work great with shredded paper instead of the cotton balls (more eco friendly too!). Bothe the shredded paper sheep and the cotton ball sheep look lovely. So you can’t go wrong either way! These are so popular with young children and great for a classroom setting!
I first made this Cotton Wool Lamb SOOOO very long ago as a guest post for the guardian online as a lovely spring lamb craft and not just Easter lamb crafting! We love working with cotton balls when the kids are little, but as with the rocking sheep craft, you could probably make this with shredded paper too! No harm in keeping things thrifty and eco friendly, especially if working in the classroom.
We actually made two Cardboard Tube Sheep Craft over the years… this one and another more “shaun the sheep one” below. I love the little twiggy legs of this Toilet Roll Sheep! The sheep’s head is also made from a toilet paper roll, shaped with some cleer cuts and a little masking tape. And love how that beedy eye is looking at me. Ha!
And here is our second Toilet Paper Roll Sheep (Shaun the Sheep)! Isn’t he fun? Personally I think this version was probably a bit easier to make, as you didn’t need to paint your empty toilet paper rolls first!
How about this bubble wrap sheep craft for kids! This is an activity that the kids and I adored – making a – bubble wrap printing is a super fun activity! You can use the bubble wrap to print your woolly sheep and later to to stuff them. Such a simple activity. We actually stapled ours together (quick and easy), but if you want to “extend” the idea a little, you could add some paper sewing too! Such an easy sheep craft that preschoolers especially will love! We “stapled” our sheep together, but you could hole punch around the edge of the sheep and use these for a fine motor lacing activity too! These would make lovely spring lamb decorations to welcome the new season.
Sheep corner bookmarks… the newest of our Easter Bookmark Designs.. Have a go at these fluffy Sheep Corner Bookmarks! So fun what you can do with just some white and black paper, scissors and a little glue. Easy and cute! As you know, we have 100s of corner bookmarks here on Red Ted Art, and it wouldn’t be a “roudn up” if we didn’t have a bookmark for this Sheep Collection too! Perfect for any farm unit learning at school!
We love making pom poms! Especially if you have a pom pom maker – I find young kids manage pom poms really well with those. Older kids can make pom poms with cardboard or with their fingers or even make pom poms using a fork! Then make Easy Pom Pom Sheep! Aren’t these adorable sheep to make? So cute and fluffy! I love that they look great made from white pom poms but other colours too! Just remember to add the googly eyes.
So we made a paper plate sheep that rocks already! But how about taking some more paper plates, grabbing your pom pom sheep and turning them into this lovely (and easy) Yarn Wrapped Paper Plate Wreath for spring? These are wreaths are probably one my favourite Spring decorations in a long time. We also made one with a dangly bee pom pom at the bottom, so cute!
Here are some quick and ! I made these to go on a Minecraft cake (I think??) I can’t remember now, but my, they were so easy to make!
And finally, how fun are these Sheep Cupcakes? Super quick and easy to make and the kids will love them! Of course you can just grab the cupcake liners and make some cute cupcake liner sheep too (think: flattened cupcake liner, with two black legs and a little black face and done!). So cute. Or maybe make both!
Gorgeous Sheep Crafts & Lamb DIYs from around the web:
Now onto our collection of Sheep DIYs from around the web!! Here are some great websites to discover and fall in love with! As mentioned, I think these all make wonderful Easter craft ideas.. but of course you can make these adorable sheep for spring or as part of a farm study unit in the classroom.
So let’s begin this section with an adorable lamb craft – the handprint sheep/ lamb! How cute is this? Preschoolers will LOVE tracing their own hand and sticking on lots of tactile cotton balls to decorate the sheep with! More info on Healthy Mama Info. Super lovely Easter activity for little ones.
– these are simply the cutest little lamb craft, don’t you think? Definitely one to make FOR your preschooler or kids though! Maybe the Easter bunny can bring one of these in the Easter baskets for your little.
Felt Sheep Ornament/ Lamb Mobile – a similar “feel” to my bubble wrap sheep shared earlier, you can make some lovely little felt lambs and add some string to the top of the sheep to hang. They would make a great Easter mobile or garland.
Rock Sheep – sorry the link for this is no longer available.. but you can image how these are made.. right? Get some good quality paint pens in white, grey and blacka nd have FUN! So so sooo cute!
Another take on the DIY Sheep Wreaths – such a cute easy Easter craft for kids to make!
Cork Sheep – such a cute printing activity for kids of all ages, though I reckon kindergarten and preschoolers will especially love this one! Too cute and easy peasy too!
Wooly Sheep Craft – so cute! – if you know Red Ted Art, you know we love yarn wrapping! Yarn wrapped crafts always look so very cute and so very effective AND they are so “do able” for younger kids! Love the combination of the yarn wrapping with clothespin legs! So swete little lambs to make!
Lamb Nail Art Craft – get the tweens and teens excited about spring and Easter with these cute Easter Lamb nails. So fun!
Lamb Pom Pom Garland – another way to decorate with white pom pom sheep! Make a bunch and hang them up! Such a sweet and easy peasy craft. Or maybe hang them from an Easter tree – lovely Easter decor either way!
You can make these fun Easter Sheep Craft using wooden craft eggs or blown out egg shells. Personally I LOVE using hollow eggs, instead of craft eggs.. but either is lovely! These maek a great decoration for the Easter Table too (in fact.. you could probably decorate hard boiled eggs for eating like this?? Just dab on a little acrylic paint to the hard boiled egg, then grab some markers and add the features?? Mmmh).
Sheep Finger Puppets – such adorable Easter lambs to make. And again would be a great little gift for the Easter bunny to bring on Easter Sunday!
TP Roll Sheep – yet a third variation on Toilet Paper Roll sheep!
Lamb Puzzle Craft – a fun way to use up all those random puzzle pieces.
