Easy Sheep Pom Pom Craft

Crafting is a wonderful way to engage children in a playful learning experience.

This craft specifically is great for developing fine motor skills – specifically matching to dots – and can also be used to teach counting!

Some of the benefits of these crafts include:

  • Enhancing Fine Motor Skills: Assembling the cotton balls onto the sheep template requires precision and control, which are crucial for developing fine motor skills in young children.
  • Boosting Creativity: Every sheep will be unique, reflecting the individual creativity and imagination of each child.
  • Teaching Patience and Focus: This activity encourages children to take their time and focus on the task at hand, skills that are valuable in all areas of life.
  • Sensory Experience: The soft texture of the cotton balls adds a sensory element to the crafting experience, making it even more engaging for little ones.

How to Use the Sheep Cotton Ball Craft Printable

Getting started with this craft is easy, and you probably already have most of the materials at home! Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Free Printable: Our specially designed sheep template is the foundation of this craft. Simply download and print it out to get started.
  • Cotton Balls, pom poms, or any circular objects: These will be used to create the fluffy wool of the sheep. You’ll need a handful, depending on how fluffy you want your sheep to be. I recommend using the standard/small cotton balls and not the jumbo size. If you use jumbo, just rip them into 2-3 pieces.
  • Glue: Any basic craft glue will do the trick – we like elmers glue.

Step-by-Step Guide:

  1. Prepare Your Materials: Gather your free printable, cotton balls, and glue.
  2. Apply Glue: Let kids add a dot of glue to each circle.
  3. Attach the Cotton Balls or pom poms: Place the balls onto the glued area, pressing gently to ensure they stick.
  4. Let It Dry: Once your sheep is fully covered, allow some time for the glue to dry.
  5. Display Your Craft: Once dry, your sheep is ready to be proudly displayed!

Want an easy alternative? Pair this printable with dot markers instead. My daughter loves doing dot markers at preschool – this would be perfect for that!
