Craft Stick Barn with Clothespin Sheep and Goat Craft

This activity is a great way to introduce children to two common farm animals, the sheep and goat. Although they look a lot a like, they have some very unique characteristics. Look up sheep and goats on the Internet with your children and read about what makes them different. When you are done print out the activity sheet and make the sheep and goat clothespin figures. You can also have your children write things about the animals on the sides of the paper to help them remember what they have learned.
