Catholic Craft - We Are His Sheep

Catholic ABC's Week: 12
Letter of the week: G
Theme: Good Shepherd
Saint of the Week: St. George
Craft: We are His Sheep

This craft was equally enjoyed by my 2 year old and my 4 year old! I didn't get to try it out at our co-op because my daughter was too sick for us to attend that day, but it worked well at home. :-) Be sure to find great lesson plan helpers for The Good Shepherd at The Catholic Toolbox. Now, on with the craft!

Materials Needed to Complete This Craft:
  • White card stock or poster board
  • Black Construction Paper
  • Clothes Pins
  • Cotton Balls
  • School Glue (this is not a good project for glue sticks)
  • Googly eyes or Office stickers for notebook paper holes
  • Marker

Prep Work: First cut ovals from poster board or card stock. We used foam board because we had extra, but card stock would be better. Cut lamb heads out of black construction paper. Also write "We are" and "His sheep" on the clothespins.

Now your kids are ready to craft. Help them to cover their oval with glue. Then let them stick cotton balls all over it. The clothes pin legs can be pinched on. Let them stick eyes on their lamb's head. I would have liked to have googly eyes, but we were fresh out. So we used those office stickers that go around notebook paper holes. They worked well! We cut them in half to make mouths, but the sheep would be adorable with no mouths also.

The clothes pin legs allow them to stand up.

  1. Love kids love cotton balls. Will do! Thanks

  2. Thank you so much for this site. I am not Catholic, but I teach Pre-k in a Cathoilc school. I have been able to implement some of the things you suggest in my classroom. (They LOVE the preist dolls). Do you know of any other authors that write good Catholic children's books besides Tomie DePaola?

  3. Adorable! the project and the Lightening McQueen fan!


Thanks for your comments! They're the icing on my cake ;-)
