Pom Pom Sheep Craft for Kids

Pom Pom Sheep Craft from www.daniellesplace.comWhat you will need:

Black Craft Foam

White Light & Lofty Yarn or Off-white Light & Lofty Yarn

Woodsies Mini Jumbo Craft Sticks -4.5"

Wiggle Eyes

Black Acrylic Paint or Paint Marker

Low Temp Mini Glue Gun

Scissors

Pompom Maker - (Optinal)

You can buy plastic pom pom makers in several different designs.

The Clover Small Pom Pom Maker allows you to wind one half of the donut shape at a time so you don't have to poke the yarn through hole, but it does take some manuvering. You can see a video on YouTube here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d2Ma-hgQIDU.

The Susan Bates Easy Wrap Pom Pon Maker is a little easier to use because the two sides of the pom pom are wrapped separately. Wrapping only one half of the circle saves a lot of time because you don't have to poke the yarn through the hole in the center of the donut shape. You can see a demonstration using this pom pom maker on YouTube here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HaSqTUgFHi4.

SUSAN BATES has another pompom maker that is just plastic circles with a ridge in the middle. They are used the same way as the directions above.

 

How to Make the Pom Pom Yarn Sheep:

How to Make Your Own Pom Poms Without a Pom Pom Maker:How to make pom poms

1. Print out the pattern (PDF Pattern) and use the donut shapes as template to cut circles from card board. or draw two three-inch circles onto crad board. (Card board from cereal boxes work well.) Then draws1 1/2" circles inside the two circles.

2. Cut out the inside circles to make donut shapes.

3. Place the two donut shapes together and wind long pieces of yarn through the holes in the donut shapes and around the outside until you have fill up the hole with yarn. To keep the yarn ends secure just wind the yarn around the ends until the ends are covered by the yarn. Add new lengths of yarn the same way.

4. When you have the hole filled up with yarn cut around the outside edge of the donut shape with sharp scissors all the way down to the card board.

5. Separate the two donut shapes and insert a piece of yarn between the shapes. Tie the yarn pulling it as tight as you can.

6. Cut the card board shapes and pull them away from the pom pom. Trim any pieces of yarn that are sticking out too far.  Trim the ball to be a little pointy at one end. This is the bees tail where his stinger is located.

7. To save time you can cut the donut shapes so that they aren't complete circles. In this way you will just slip the yarn through the cut slit instead of inserting the yarn through the hole. See this YouTube video for a demonstration of this technique.

8. Paint two mini jumbo craft sticks black, glue them together in an "X" shape. Glue the pom pom to the craft sticks.

9. Use the head pattern as a template to cut a head shape from craft foam. Bend back the two tabs at the top of the head and glue them so they are over lapping. Glue the head to the body pom pom. To finish glue on google eyes.

Cotton Ball Sheep Craft for Kids

Easy  even for young children. Just glue on  cotton balls.  See  the Bible Lessons Page for scripture  references and suggested books.

Cotton ball sheep Bible craft for kidsWhat you will need: Cotton balls, (or you can use popcorn, or those recyclable packaging peanuts.  You can tell if they are  recyclable by placing one under water.  If it melts you can use it.  The other ones smell awful and I would be afraid a child could choke on them) cardboard (such as card board from cereal boxes),  tan felt for ears, markers or crayons, glue, movable eyes (optional), piece of ribbon and a small bell (optional)

How to make:

1. Print out the pattern and cut out the sheep from poster board. (The dotted line on the sheep pattern  means to place on a fold. So you really need to trace this pattern  back to back then fold it over at the dotted line).  You may want to  put a line of hot melt glue on the inside fold to keep the sheep's  leg from spreading out to far.

2. Color the  face and legs.

3.Glue on eyes, ears,  and cotton balls.

4.Tie a small bell onto some ribbon and place over the sheep's neck. 

Here's a tip from Bethany that might help you with this project:
Here's an easy way to find cardboard for the cutouts.   Use a Priority or Express mail cardboard letter envelope from the  post office.   Open it completely so it lays flat - you'll have to cut the edges open but leave the folded bottom portion intact.  Trace the sheep template against the fold and cut out.  Instant double sided sheep.  Turn inside out and attach small strip of cardboard from the rest of the envelope at the very bottom of the sheep on the inside between the cutout  legs to keep it standing up.

We did the lost sheep lesson last week in Sunday School with our 9 year olds and made cotton ball sheep. For legs, thought, we used clothespins, which let the sheep stand up easily. We also let the children make a flock of sheep, one for each member of their family and gave the sheep collars with family members' names on them. The kids loved the idea of having their own flock at home!

I used the Cotton Ball Sheep Craft.  I added a third "leg" to the pattern between the other two.  When you cut out the sheep the extra legs can be bent to the center and pasted together.  It makes a perfect brace to keep the sheep standing.  I also added a small bell to the neck of the sheep, which delighted the children.
