3. Popsicle Stick Sheep

Today we are going to learn how to make a Popsicle Stick Sheep. This is a great craft for kids to practice their fine motor skills. They will also learn to follow instructions and create something cute and fluffy!

Supplies needed:

  • Large popsicle sticks (four per sheep)
  • Small popsicle sticks (four per sheep)
  • Small clothespins (two per sheep)
  • Glue gun
  • Paint (White and Black)
  • Paper plate
  • Foam and a small paintbrush
  • Cardstock paper (White and Black)
  • Scissors
  • Black Sharpie 
  • Tiny wiggle eyes


Create the base of your sheep puppet by gluing four popsicle sticks in a row next to each other, and then glue two mini popsicle sticks across them perpendicularly. Set it aside to dry completely before repeating this process for however many sheep puppets you want to make today. Once the base is dry enough, squirt some white and black paint onto the paper plate.

Paint your newly created popsicle stick white with the foam paint brush. Paint the black craft paint on your TWO small clothespins as well. Set aside all of the painted components. Grab all of your cardstock sheets and craft scissors. Cut out a big head from the black cardstock and some hair on top of the head, using white paper.

Take your painted popsicle stick shape and flip it, so the rectangle is on its larger side. Glue your paper headpieces to the painted popsicle stick figure after you’ve completed it. To finish the Popsicle Stick Sheep project, pin the 2 painted clothing pins to the painted popsicle stick form to make the legs. Add any other decorations you like (a small bow or a little sprinkle of glitter, for example!). Then allow it to dry fully before handling.

We hope you had as much fun making these sheep as we did! We can’t wait to see what you create!

Making a Q-tip lamb is a fun and easy project you can do with your preschooler. All you need are:

  • Q-tips
  • A magic marker
  • White glue
  • A pink pencil or crayon
  • White paper (heavier white card stock would be best if you have some)
  • Scissors
  • Two clothes pins

To make the lamb, first cut an oval shape for the body and head of the sheep. Next, cut off the tips of the Q-tips and glue them at one end of the lamb’s body. Then, place the Q-tip ends over the top of the line of glue. Start with the outer edges and overlap the second layer of Q-tips on top of the first layer. Keep adding lines of glue and Q-tips as you work your way across the lamb’s body.

It’s time to add the head after completing the body with Q-tips. Add three q-tip ends to the narrow part of the egg shape, using a small amount of glue. Keep your selections of Q-tips consistent in length so that they appear tidy and organized.

It’s time to give your lamb some features. Use a fine-tip magic marker to draw the closed eyes with eyelashes, little nose, and mouth.

To finish, use a faded light pink pencil crayon to paint the lamb’s cheeks with a touch of blush. Then, using a scrap piece of skinny ribbon, make a tiny bow and adhere it to the top of the lamb’s head. Finally, wait for everything to dry before gluing the head to the body. After that, attach two clothes pins to the back of the lamb.

Your Q-tip lamb is now complete! You can display him proudly on a shelf or mantle or use him as part of your child’s Easter basket this year.
