The tissue paper scrunched up will give the sheep more of a 3d look and he’ll look nice and fluffy when it’s added to the template.
Kids are able to strengthen their fine motor skills when they tear or scrunch up the tissue paper and put it in place. This motion works the small muscles in their hands and improves their grasp which is important for handwriting.
So print out the sheep template, grab a few craft supplies, and get to the fun!
- Colored cardstock or construction paper
- Tissue paper squares
- Sheep template (enter your email in the form to get the template)
Download the sheep template, print, and cut out the pieces you need.
Begin by placing glue over a portion of the sheep background.
Crumple up some tissue paper and glue it on the section the glue was spread on.
Repeat the last two steps until the entire sheep’s body is completed.
Next, glue the eyes to the middle of the head.
Glue the nose just below the eyes.
Finish up by cutting the bottom portion of the paper off along the dashed line.
