Cotton bud sheep


This fun make is great for developing your child's hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills as they roll and shape the clay, push the cotton buds into the clay and finally apply the paint to create the little model sheep. Why not encourage your child to make a little gang of cotton bud farmyard animals. They could make a pig with a cotton bud snout, and a chicken using cotton buds for its beak and tail feathers.

How to extend the magic

You could construct some little pens for your animals to live in. Just make something simple from some old cardboard packets or boxes. It doesn't have to be anything fancy. Then just and add some shredded up paper or tissue paper as bedding.
