Free Printable Sheep Template
I’ve shared loads of sheep crafts for kids over the years and as we share so many free templates for kids crafts as well I’m surprised it’s taken me so long to share this sheep craft template with you as it’s such an obvious choice for us.
I wasn’t sure whether to call this a sheep template or a lamb template as I think it could work for either of them, it’s pretty cute so go with whatever you prefer!
This PDF contains two slightly different designs, one shows the eyes, nose and mouth on the sheep’s face and the other doesn’t, just choose the one that’s better for the activity you want to do and you should be able to set your printer to just print that page.
Of course you can also print as many copies as you like so it’s perfect if your child wants to try out a few ideas or a few different colors or if you are in a classroom or preschool and want to print a copy for each child, they’d make cute classroom decorations on a bulletin board!
Sheep Craft Ideas
Our templates make great printable coloring pages and they’re a fun way to keep young children busy, all you need to grab are markers, crayons or coloring pencils.
If you want to color your sheep outline in white then you might want to choose to print this onto colored paper rather than the normal white paper so you can see it on your sheep’s body when you color it in.
Otherwise you can of course color in a black sheep or pick your favorite colors, green and pink sheep would be pretty popular around ours!
With their fluffy texture making a cotton ball sheep craft is an obvious choice and their big shape means that they’re a material that’s good for kids of all ages to be able to hold as well as being a really fun activity.
Simply cover your sheep’s body in glue and then stick your cotton balls all over it, you can see how we’ve made this with our cotton ball sheep craft.
If your child is likely to use a lot of glue for this craft (and I know that my own kids have a tendency to pour a ton of liquid glue on projects) then I’d recommend printing your template onto white card stock rather than paper so that the paper doesn’t become saturated and soggy with the glue.
Cardstock is also a lot better than paper if you are gluing anything with any kind of weight onto it, you don’t want your craft to tear.
You can glue pom poms onto the body of your sheep or use them to paint with as you can see below with the instructions for our pom pom sheep craft.
This is similar to making a mosaic but instead of using scissors to create straight lines you can tear the paper into shapes before you glue it down.
Use black construction paper or craft paper for the sheep’s head and legs and white construction paper or printer paper for the sheep’s body.
To make the sheep’s eyes you could either cut circles out of white paper and do a black dot in them with a pen or you could glue on googly eyes if you prefer.
Bubble wrap painting
Bubble wrap is another really good way to try and re-create the textured look of sheep’s wool as well as being a lot of fun.
To paint with bubble wrap pour some paint into a plate so that it’s easier to access and then dab your bubble wrap in it before patting it onto your sheep’s body to cover it in little circles.
When we are using bubble wrap to paint with I like to make a little envelope shape to cover my kids hands so that they don’t get totally covered in paint.
You can do this by taking a piece of bubble wrap and folding it in half and then using tape to do up two of the sides so that your child can put their hand in the middle of it.
Why not get your sheep ready for the warmer weather by covering them in some cute flower stickers? This would be a good activity for fine motor skills as well.
