6 Preschool Sheep Crafts
As mentioned above the possibilities for our sheep cut outs are endless. Nevertheless, I like to inspire you with some great ideas on how to use them in your classroom or at home.
1. Sheep Stencils
The first thing that comes to my mind when I think about our printable sheep templates is to use them as stencils. It is such an easy sheep craft for preschoolers. I recommend using our medium-sized printables for your preschoolers. This way it is easier for them to cut them and turn them into wonderful sheep artwork.

2. Letter S Sounds
It is time for your children to learn the letter “S”. No better way of using our free printable sheep outlines to manifest the letter S. Simply download them for free, cut them out, and use them as show and tell for the letter S. Otherwise you could also let your children or students do an easy craft while teaching the letter.
3. Counting Sheeps Activity
Did you count sheep when you were little to fall asleep? Why not use our sheep template printables to teach your kids to count and learn the numbers?
To focus on the educational part of this sheep activity I would recommend you cut and decorate the sheep ahead of time. This way your children can focus on what is important: Counting and learning their numbers.
After you have cut and decorated the small printable sheep, take a marker and write the numbers on their body. Now you can implement them into your teaching routine.

4. Easter Lamp Craft
Especially during Spring, when Easter comes near our templates make adorable Easter lamp crafts. Why not print and cut them and instead of using markers to color them use materials such as pom poms, wool, or cotton balls to decorate them nicely.
With help of a glue stick attach your materials to the back of the sheep and give them a nice soft 3d look. It is the perfect Easter motor skill activity your children will love!
5. Sheep Coloring Pages
I added several sheep coloring pages, such as cute sheep body templates, or a sheep head template. They show the colored picture in the right corner so smaller children know which parts to color in which color.
Coloring sheep is a nice calming activity and requires a lot of focus from smaller children to draw inside the lines. They def. will enjoy it!
6. Classroom Decoration
Why not use the Easter lamb crafts from above and use them to decorate your classroom for Spring and Easter? You can place them on your windows for parents to see or create a garland full of sheep with them. They would look nice hanging from the ceiling for sure!
