Fluffy Sheep

Yesterday, Abe and I made some fluffy sheep. This method is really better for older kids because it lets them practice tracing, cutting, and gluing, but toddlers like little balls of fluff so I figured we'd give it a try. I just did all the tracing, cutting, and most of the gluing...

1. Trace your child's hand onto black construction paper and cut out.

2. Cover the palm of the hand with glue, and stick small cotton balls or white pom-poms in the glue.

3. Attach sheep to another sheet of construction paper or punch a hole in the top and hang from the ceiling (put cotton on both sides if you want to hang them).

It took him awhile to catch on, but eventually Abe stuck a few cotton balls in the glue. The real fun came this morning when he noticed his sheep hanging on the fridge and started pulling the cotton balls off of them! I guess it was time to shear the sheep.
