Make Paper Plate Lamb and Sheep Masks

These cute, fluffy paper plate lamb and sheep masks are really easy to make and something children of all ages will love to have in their dressing up box. I really like that they sit on the forehead as some little ones don’t like wearing full face masks and it makes it much easier for glasses wearers too.

Springtime is such a wonderful season for getting children interested in animals and nature as there’s so much going on. The snowdrops and daffodils are beginning to poke through, the buds are appearing on the trees and the fields are home to frolicking lambs.

It really is a magical time of year with so much to see, experience and chatter about. These paper plate lamb and sheep masks are easy for you and your little one to make together to continue the exploration, play and learning within the home.

They’re great at Christmas time for Nativity plays too!Make a paper plate lamb or sheep mask. A great animal craft for kids to promote imaginative play

      Perfect timing…I’ll be adding a bunny and pig mask too soon so do keep hold of those plates. 😉

    I adore these! We will have to try this as they have started lambing at the local children’s farm so we are all about lamb’s and their ‘lamb cam’ web feed at the moment!

      Oh wow a lamb cam! What a brilliant idea, sadly our local farm doesn’t offer anything like that. Thanks for taking the time to comment, we’re delighted you like the masks.

    I teach toddlers and this month we have been reading and learning about the shepherd. We have been doing sheep activities and this week will be the last week. I was wondering what to do fun for them and WOW, when I saw this I just knew my little ones had to become sheep. Thank you so much for such a wonderful idea.
