Mary had a little lamb craft

This little lamb craft was fun to make with my two kids when they were toddlers and my preschool nephew. It was so easy the eldest of them was able to cut out the cloud shape and snip off some paper for the tail and legs, however, I did cut out the head for all 3 of them to make it easier.

Cute little egg box lamb or sheep craft made by kids.

Egg boxes are great crafting materials and so much fun (and a little messy) to decorate. These ever so simple and cute Egg Box Lambs and Sheep are great for little hands to make.

One of the other things that we have daily in our recycling box is yoghurt pots and they make a great craft to model with. We never made Yoghurt Pot Sheep when mine were little but I remember seeing this from Crafts on Sea and thinking what a great idea it would be.

How do you get the effect of wool on the sheep – well over on Buggy and Buddy they have a fantastic way of stamping the wool that makes these Spring Lambs the perfect craft for your tots.

If you have any doilies laying around the cupboards then bring them out and make these Doily Sheep so easy to do.

One of our favourite animals on the farm are the pigs and the cute little piglets, they feature in our favourite storybook The Three Little Pigs we’ve been inspired by that to create our own Storybook Houses for the 3 little pigs to live in.

Whenever we head to the farm you can guarantee that we will see some extremely muddy pigs and this fantastic Muddy Pig Sensory Art from Teacher 2 and 3-year-olds is perfect to get creative and not that messy with once you return from the farm.

Coffee Filters make a great resource to craft with and this cute little piggy from Look! We’re Learning is a great simple craft that the kids will enjoy to make.

We just love this paper plate pig craft for it’s simplicity and a great book recommendation to go along with it as well.
