Paper Plate Sheep Craft

Sheep paper plate craft

What you will need:

Two dinner-sized paper plates (heavy duty is best, but the cheap ones will work),

1 Snack-Sized Paper Plate

White Card Stock or Poster Board

Four, 5-ounce Dixie Cups

Red and White Paint

Hot Melt Glue Gun or Stapler

School Glue

Black Markers

Cotton Balls


How to Make the Sheep Paper Plate Craft:

1. Make the four legs first. Cut the side seams (the part of the cup that has been glue together) out of the cup and then squeeze the sides together rolling the sides over each other and glue them together with a hot melt glue gun. If you don't have a glue gun, staple them together. You want to make the top part of the cup much smaller. Do this for all four legs. Make a crease on both sides of the legs at the top of the cups so that the seams are on the bottom. Cut about one inch down on each side and slide them onto a dinner sized paper plate that is set upright so that the seams of the legs are facing down. Glue or staple them to the plate.

2. Turn another dinner sized paper plate upside down and glue or staple it on top of the plate with the feet.

3. Paint the feet black and let them dry while you work on the head.

4. To make the head paint the top side of a snack sized paper plate pink for the mouth and let dry. Fold it in half when it is dry so that the pink is inside.

5. Cut out two ears from poster board and glue them to the back of the head.

6. Glue the head onto the body as shown in the picture.

7. Glue cotton balls all over the sheep's body.

8. Draw eyes on a piece of card stock, cut them out and glue them to the head. Draw in the nose and mouth.
