Christmas Creatures | Make 1

 

Creatures lessons aren’t complete without creature crafts and these very cute fluff-ball sheep are both simple and quick to make. Christmas Creatures | Make 1

 

Christmas Creatures | Make 1 You will need some packaging card, scissors, 2-3 cotton wool balls per sheep, colouring pens, a toothpick, a glue stick and the printout (contains 11 sheep per page). You may also choose to use a craft hole-punch and a thick needle.

Christmas Creatures | Make 1 Stick the printout on the card and cut out one head and 2 sets of legs for each sheep. They don’t have any colour so you’ll need to add some!

If you want to use the sheep for a display then double up and stick other set to the back of the card too, or use the shapes as purely as templates and don’t add any decoration.

 

Christmas Creatures | Make 1 Thread one cotton ball onto the middle of your toothpick. If you have trouble try using a thick needle to make a hole first.

 

Christmas Creatures | Make 1 If you are using a small hole-punch then make a hole at the top middle of each set of legs. You may be able to do this with your toothpick dependant on how sharp/strong it is.

Add a little glue to both sides of the legs, this is not necessary but will stop the sheep coming apart. Thread the legs onto the sheep either side of the cotton wool ball.

Christmas Creatures | Make 1 If you are feeling brave snap your toothpick at the legs so the neck goes upwards. This makes a big difference to the shape but is not necessary. Christmas Creatures | Make 1

 

Christmas Creatures | Make 1 If you are feeling very adventurous why not use some craft pompoms and try making a camel… or perhaps even a donkey?

  1. Grandma has put together an advent calendar that has cue words for the nativity figures. This sheep would be perfect to use for it!
    When you pass the sheep you say, “Jesus, the Lamb of God.”
    The calendar is currently available to print out in English, Spanish, Chinese, and Portuguese.
    Additional games and lessons are also available to print out.
    Blessings!
    Grandma
