“I love ewe” cards

30 Jan

We have started making Valentine’s Day Cards, and are having a lot of fun decorating them.  Here is a card we just made for the upcoming festivities featuring a cute little sheep.  The project idea came from this book that I had borrowed from our church.

My Kids Make “I love ewe” cards, and yours can too! Find out more:

Get 2 cotton balls {per card}. Fluff one out a bit so it is larger than the second cotton ball.  Glue the cotton balls onto your card.

Some of us like lots of glue:

Glue on the googly eyes and a small pom pom for the tail. For the ears: I cut small pieces of black pipe cleaners and then bent them in half making a small “u” shape. The kids glued these on the head. We glued on a tiny heart for the mouth/nose, just because we thought it was cute.  Finally, draw on the sheep’s 4 legs.

The cards are cute as cute can be.

    I just saw this adorable featured over at Craft Gossip Lesson Plans. This is wonderful, sometimes it is nice to do something different than traditional hearts and young kids love gluing cotton balls so much. Thanks so much for posting this.
