This is handprint sheep is a
cute and fun project
to do with
your children. It is extra special and has more meaning since it uses
the child's handprint. It will be one of those keepers for sure! This
is great for a school art project too, and you don't need too many
- Paper Plate
- Black Paint
- Light blue card stock or construction
paper (or color of your choice)and a little scrap of black paper
- Cotton balls
- Googly eye
by pouring some of the black paint on a paper plate. Have your card
stock ready. Then, have your child dip his or her hand into the paint
and make a handprint in the center of the card stock. Allow this to dry
2. When the handprint is dry, it is time to decorate it. Turn the
handprint upside down, so the fingers are pointing down. The fingers
will be the sheep's legs, and the thumb is his tail.
3. Use cotton balls, and spread them apart slightly to glue them on the
center of the sheep.
4. Make the sheep's head by cutting an oval from black paper. I like to
use the handle of my scissors as a template. Then glue on a googly eye.
You can use a black marker to add a little ear.
