This is a simple sheep which you can create with things lying around the house. Why not make a flock for your Easter decorations

Look who's peeping

Time: 20 minutes
Age: Under 5's, 5-10's
Level: Easy

A sheet of newspaper
Masking tape
White and black paper
Glue and scissors
Straws or sticks or twigs


Take a newspaper sheet and crumple it. Use masking tape to secure the loose ends and stabilise it into a ball. Do not make it very tight.

Make 4 holes on one side for the legs. Insert equal lengths of straws or twigs. I used pieces of wooden chopsticks I'd got with Chinese takeaway food.

Make small balls of cotton. Stick around the full paper ball. You may leave the underside. This is the only step that takes time, but kids just love to do this one.

Have you any wool?

Body is ready

Use the black paper and draw an oval shaped face.
Draw 2 leaf shaped ears.
For the eyes, either use googly eyes or just draw small circles on white paper and smaller circles in black.
Assemble the eyes and ears on the face and stick on the body.

Make upright or droopy ears

Your sheep is ready. Try making a flock with different sizes of sheep.
