How To Make a Woolly Sheep
1 – To make the sheep’s body, cut out a circle from black paper and then scallop cut the edge.
2 – Next cut out a fat egg shape from white paper for the sheep’s head. Then cut two black ears and glue them on.
3 – Glue a strip of black paper onto a rectangle of white paper. Then cut the white paper into strips to make 4 sheep’s legs.
4. Glue the legs and head onto the body.
5 – To make the sheep’s wool, curl some white yarn around your finger three or four times.
6 – Apply a small circle of school glue onto the sheep’s body and put your wrapped yard onto it.
7 – Keep repeating this process until you’ve covered the sheep’s body.
8 – Finally draw a nose and smile onto the face and draw or stick on some eyes.
