Spring is a wonderful time of year to pull out your favorite sheep craft for kids. We’re partial to this fun and easy eraser stamped sheep art project. You may also enjoy making these felt shape sheep.

Besides being fun, puzzles are an often overlooked educational tool. I’ve used puzzles to teach my children about the world. I also love using 4D Cityscape Time puzzles in our history lessons, as they allow children to see how historical events shape cities and countries.
I believe in hands on learning wherever possible, in all school subjects. So when I was offered the chance to review three new Dr. Livingston human body jumbo learning puzzles, I said yes. I knew these puzzles would be fantastic for teaching my children about the human body.

Eraser Stamped Sheep Spring Art Activity
I came up with this fun eraser stamped sheep craft for kids as a Chinese New Year activity for the kids since 2015 is the year of the sheep. All four kids enjoyed making flocks of these little sheep, and they double up as an excellent spring craft for kids!
This is a quick and easy craft that looks cute whether it is made by a two-year-old or an eight-nearly-nine-year-old. All you need is a bit of white paint, a pencil with an unused eraser, and a sheet of construction paper. We love Crayola washable paint* for its lovely colors and washability. You may have noticed that my kids never wear painting or craft clothes – I just buy craft supplies that I know will wash out.
Dip your eraser in the paint and stamp several circles onto your paper, close together. Your stamped creation will soon begin to look like a woolly sheep! Make as many sheep as you want, and then set your paper aside for the paint to dry.
Once your paint dries, use a plain black pen to add a dot for an eye and four legs. Easy and adorable! And, what matters more than the cute factor, it is fun for kids of all ages! The woolly-looking result is just a bonus. The kids enjoyed this so much that they decided to also make a slew of bunnies, which make a great spring or Easter craft! They want to add more animals to their eraser-stamped collection – do you have any suggestions for them?
Emma even made a quick video for you to watch:
