How to Make a Paper Plate Sheep

Start by printing out the template and cutting out the pieces onto your colored craft paper. We cut the head and legs from black construction paper. The eyes from white and the cheeks and ears from pink.

Using your black marker, color the pupils of the eyes. Or grab you a set of big googly eyes instead.

Then start assembling the sheep’s face by attaching the eyes to the top part of the sheep’s head.
