Easter Inspiration Crafts here we come. Baaaaa – YESSSSS! It is that time of year.. we can slowly get all excited about lovely Lamb Crafts and Sheep Crafts (ahem Lamb and Sheep Crafts are usually the same, really, aren’t they!?!?
But I can never decide what to call them.. anyway, I digress). As we look ahead to Easter and Spring, I can’t wait to get started on some adorable little sheep crafts.
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! I know I will have a go at quite few this year. Don’t forget, that we have a fabulous collection of Bunny Crafts and Chick Crafts for you to browse at your leisure too!
Happy Spring Crafting!!!!
And here for all your Sheep Craft Links
Let’s start off 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 tehse 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 wool (more eco friendly too!).
I first made this Cotton Wool Lamb SOOOO very long ago as a guest post for the guardian online! We love working with cotton wool 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 TP Roll 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! And love how that beedy eye is looking at me. Ha!
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!
And here is our second TP Roll Sheep (Shaun the Sheep)! Isn’t he fun?
The newest of our Easter Bookmark Designs.. are these fluffy Sheep Corner Bookmarks! 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!
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! Then make Easy Pom Pom Sheep!
Then turn your pom pom sheep into a 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!
