With my son being off school we’ve been missing our walk to and from. Usually on our walk we can see the sheep that belong to a local farmer. We were talking about those fluffy sheep when my little guy suggested that we should make our own sheep. I’m pretty sure he meant a real one but that’s a little bit beyond my powers! So, instead we came up with this cute fluffy hand print sheep craft. It’s not as good as a real fluffy sheep but it’s still pretty cute!
You will need
White and black card
To start off, draw around your little one’s hand and then cut out the hand print to use as a template.
Draw around your template hand print to make 6 or 7 more (depending on your little ones hand size), then cut them out. We used 7 hand prints including our template one.
Take your glue and stick the palms of your hand prints down together in a circle wreath shape to make the sheep’s fluffy body.
From your black card, cut out the acorn shape of you sheep’s head and then stick it down in the centre of your sheep as you can see in the picture above. Then cut out two long rectangular legs and using your glue, secure them in place on the back of your sheep.
Now give your sheep two eyes, we used eye stickers but if you don’t have these you can simply cut out two white circles and then use a black marker to draw on the details. Next, cut out two small white circles for nostrils and two pink circles to make the rosy cheeks. Glue all of your face pieces down and your super cute hand print sheep is finished!

If you've followed the blog at all you will know that my son is mad about all things under the sea. He loves learning about the ocean environment and its inhabitants though his books and we read some of national geographic kids ultimate oceanpedia almost every single day. He loves watching documentaries together too and more often than not hes the one teaching me something new! It was actually him who gave me the idea for this cute paper plate jellyfish
Today I'm back again with another pipe cleaner craft! We had so much fun making these yesterday and came up with some really fun little ideas. I think though that these pipe cleaner snail magnets are my favourite of the day. They're just so adorable and once you get the hang of them they're really easy to make too. We have a whole garden full of them on our fridge right now!
How sweet are these little pipe cleaner apple magnets? It took us a couple of tries to perfect them but now weve got them figured and wanted to share them with you all! In fact, we've got so good at making them that it only takes us a few minutes on each. My son recently Made some sweet apple and worm cards for his teachers as due to current situation he wont be going back to school this year and he wanted to make extra to gift them too. Such a sweet little idea!
