Sheep are cute little animals, aren’t they? Whether it’s spring, Easter or Bakrid, these cute and Creative Sheep Crafts for Kids are just what you need!
Do you remember the first nursery rhyme you learnt? I’m not sure about mine, but it’s a close contest between Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and Baa Baa Black Sheep. I hadn’t seen a black sheep till then, so I could understand the obsession with its wool!
When I was little, I thought sheep were made of clouds. They were both fluffy and white, and both seemed out of reach for me to touch! I remember the first time I saw a sheep – I was a little disappointed it didn’t look anything like a cloud!
However, today’s sheep crafts are perfectly cute and well within reach. You need very basic craft supplies to make these crafts, which are just in time for BakrId, or Eid-ul-Adha at the end of the month. So go ahead, get out that white paper and white pom poms and let’s get started!
