Fancy a sheep craft? Here are 8 fun and easy sheep crafts you can add to your Chinese New Year lesson plan to help kids get into the celebration in a fun and creative way! (but the sheep crafts won’t mind if you use them to learn about Easter, Eid, or the coming of spring too!)
Paper Plate Sheep: I love how this craft teaches kids about the importance of sheep and wool in Ireland, and how their wool is woven into warm sweaters!
Goat Craft from Artsy Craftsy Mom: learn a Mandarin symbol as you make this goat or sheep craft.
Painted Cotton Sheep from Sand in My Toes: kids love to feel the cotton in this fuzzy sheep craft.
Pouch Cap Sheep Printing from House of Burke: painting with pouch caps!? So unique and fun!
Window Sheep Craft from Adventures of Adam: perfect activity for little ones on a rainy day.
Red Ted Sheep Craft: another fuzzy lamb with an easy template.
Curtain Ring Sheep Craft from Spun By Me: I love how kids practice their fine motor skills, winding the yarn.
