White card stock
Two wooden clothespin
Markers to add the face
Small ribbon to make a bow for the head
Begin the lamb craft by clicking here to open up a PDF file of the patterns for the body and head (a new window will open, Adobe Reader required). Print this out on white card stock, and then cut out the patterns.
Next, cut off the heads of cotton swabs. If a child is making this craft, be sure an adult does this part. Make each cotton swab end about 1/2 inch long.
Begin gluing the cotton swab tips to the card stock body of the sheep, beginning at the back of the body. Then, layer more cotton swabs across the body. Use the photos below to guide you.
Next, glue two cotton swab tips to the side of the head to be the ears, as shown below.
To make the lamb\'s "hair", cut three cotton swab tips off right at the head of the swab; they will be about 1/4 long. Layer and glue these to the top of the head as shown.
Use some markers to add on some cute facial features for the lamb.
Tie the ribbon in a small bow, and glue it to the top of the lamb\'s head.
Glue two wooden clothespins to the back of the lamb\'s body. Check for balance and levelness when the glue is tacky, by standing the lamb up. Readjust the legs as necessary. Then allow them to dry completely.
