Cotton Ball Sheep Craft and Game
Hey guys and welcome to another Playful Preschool Wednesday post. This is the time we’re a group of fabulous bloggers share with you all some great themed activities. Last week we shared Snowmen and this week we are sharing Nursery Rhymes.
My preschooler and I had a difference of opinions about what nursery rhyme we wanted to focus on so we compromised and touched on a few. That’s when questions were raised about some of the words and we quickly scrapped our first idea and went with this Easy Crafts for Preschool of Little Bo Peep.
Little Bo Peep Nursery Rhyme
Little Bo Peep has lost her sheep and doesn’t know where to find them.
Leave them alone and they’ll come home wagging their tails behind them.
For this nursery rhyme we made sheep. This was a craft that was easy for my preschooler and my toddler to complete. To make the sheep
- Cotton balls
- Large circle cut from white construction paper
- Small circle cut from black construction paper
- DIY Glue Pad (glue works just as well)
- Wiggly eyes
- Glue the black circle onto the white circle, something like a head
- Glue the wiggly eyes on the black circle
- Let them glue in all the cotton balls to make full sheep
- Let dry and that’s it
This was simple and both my girls were really impressed with their sheep, even if one has cotton ball eyes or a cotton ball nose.
The next morning I hid the sheep and called to my Little Bo Peeps to go and find them. For my preschooler I gave her a word number and told her to find the spot with that many cotton balls and there she could find her sheep. Every spot with cotton balls she had to tell me how many cotton balls and show me the correct word number.
For my toddler I left pink and red hearts down and she had to follow the pink hearts, picking them up and placing them in the right colored heart cup to find her sheep.
The girls had so much fun looking for their sheep and saying the nursery rhyme over and over again. Hey, and I got some time to prep lunch without hearing mommy I’m hungry.
Well I hope that you all enjoyed this share. If you would like to try some more Nursery Rhyme activities then check below to find some from some of my team mates.
