Paper Plate Crafts ~ How to Make a Paper Plate Sheep
I love simple Paper Plate Crafts. With spring right around the corner, I couldn’t resist making an adorable paper plate sheep. I have to say they turned out pretty adorable!
Paper Plate Sheep Supplies:
- A Paper Plate
- White Shredded paper
- Googly Eyes
- Black paper for legs, face and ears
- White School Glue
We made our Shredded Paper Snowmen using the same method. It was such a hit with the kids, that I could not wait to try it again. Be warned, it is a little messy. Like glitter, you will probably end up with shredded paper everywhere. However, it is super easy to clean up and a great way to recycle your paper scraps. Not to mention, the kids LOVE it.
Encourage your kids to squish glue all over the paper plate. Cover your work service, this is one of those projects where the more glue the better.
Once their plate is all “gluey”, have the kids to press handfuls of shredded paper onto their plates. This part may get a little messy, but the paper sweeps up really easy.
Repeat the layers of glue and shredded paper until the paper plate is looking woolly.
More glue for the face ears and legs. Glue is one of my kiddos favorite mediums at the moment. With that said, they loved making these little sheep!
The texture of the shredded paper is prefect for these little sheep. Cotton balls would be a more traditional approach, but I love how the shredded paper looks. I am sure we will be using shredded paper again soon!
I love these little shaggy paper plate sheep. Each of their expressions make me smile.
