Sheep are fluffy balls of wool that we all adore all year round, especially the lambs. Kids love exploring their imagination, and making sheep crafts is even cuter and better for their motor skills.

And spring has to be the best time for making sheep crafts as it coincides with lambing season. Still, Valentines Day and Easter is always around the corner and you could make these crafts to decorate your home for the season.

For teachers, sheep crafts are educative to make as the learners get to feel different types of textures which is great for their sensory development. That said, here are some of my favorite sheep activities for toddlers.
