First let's get started with the paint splatting. Grab your coloured card and fold it in half. You can have the card either horizontally or portrait depending on how you'd like to make your sheep.
Next pour some white paint on one side of the card near to the centre of the fold. You want to make sure that it joins up in the middle or you'll end up with two sheep! Try not to go too close to the edge or the paint will spill out of the card when you squeeze it.
Now it's time for the squeezing! Fold the piece of paper in half again and squeeze the paint around being careful not to go too close to the edge.
Open the paper back out and leave it to dry.
Meanwhile cut the sheep's face and legs out of black card. Older children will be able to do this themselves but for very young children you will need to do the cutting for them. Practising scissor skills with your child? The sheep's legs are a nice easy way you can do this as they're just a case of cutting a straight (ish) line. Go with the option that suits your child's age and abilities.
From your white scrap paper cut out two circles to use as your sheep's eyes and draw a black dot in the middle of each for the pupil.
Finally glue your eyes onto the sheep's face and the face and legs onto your paint splat and your sheep is finished.
Although you can use coloured paper for this craft you may find that coloured card works better for the background as the large amount of paint can make paper go a bit flimsy - you don't want your craft to tear.
