Download the sheep template and print out the pages on the corresponding colored card stock. Cut out the pieces you need.
Assemble the sheep’s head by gluing the eyes towards the top of the sheep’s head. Using a standard hole punch, cut out two small holes from the white card stock to use as the sheep’s nostrils. Glue these toward the bottom of the sheep’s face.
Glue the small white fluff to the top of the sheep’s head.
Assemble the sheep’s body by gluing the four black legs behind the sheep body. Glue the assembled head onto the white body.
Glue the sheep onto the sky blue card stock, with the feet almost touching the bottom of the paper.
Cut out strips of grass from light and dark green card stock, then glue them on the bottom of the sky blue paper, on top of the sheep’s legs.
Using the craft bond glue, make small dabs of glue on the sheep’s body and head fluff, and then place the white pom poms on top of each dab.
Repeat gluing the pom poms on the white parts of the sheep until you’ve glued them all over.
