Sheep Paper Plate Craft

One summer, my family took a vacation to Massachusetts and I remember visiting a farm and standing in the middle of a mob of sheep and lambs.  It was amazing as an eight year old to be so close to these animals.  I remember a feeling of fear coupled with amazement and how much I wanted to just run up and pull on the sheeps’ coat of fur.  This little craft project reminds me of that time with my family.  Have your little ones make a flock of their own.

Some cool facts about Sheep:

  • Young sheep are called lambs.
  • Sheep have a field of vision of around 300 degrees, allowing them to see behind themselves without having to turn their head.
  • Sheep are herbivores that eat vegetation such as grass.
  • Sheep like to stay close to others in a herd which makes them easier to move together to new pastures.
  • There are over 1 billion sheep in the world!
