This black sheep collage craft uses bubble printing to make the sheep, a really fun way to paint for little ones (although check that they know the difference between blow and suck first!)
You can make a really simple sheep like this one by providing your toddler with an outline and helping them to stick cotton wool all over it. This sheep craft is very similar and uses the child's handprint as the base for the body.
Use this printable to make a simple sheep finger puppet.
Sheep activitiesIt's quite easy to find sheep to visit, either at a local farm or just in the fields. Remember that pregnant ladies should avoid sheep during the spring lambing season. Keep an eye out locally for country fairs and so on, for example we have a yearly sheep fair very local to us.
Here are lots of sheep colouring pages, as well as ones that can be used to make sheep lacing games and printables.
