Spring Crafts for Kids: DIY Lamb Puppet


You know the old saying "In like a lion, out like a lamb". With the end of March here and Easter right around the corner, it's a great time for some spring crafts for kids! This paper plate lamb craft is a fun way to keep the kids entertained. And it makes for a great rainy day activity!

I'm a big fan of crafts that I can pull together from my craft supplies and this is one of those easy crafts that you probably already have all the supplies for.



- Sturdy paper plate

- Cotton balls

- White school glue

- Black paper

- popsicle stick



1. Cut a hole out of the middle of your paper plate. Make sure it's big enough so that you can see your child's face in it.


2. Cover your paper plate with some regular old white glue and let your kiddo glue on the cotton balls to be the lamb wool.


3. Cut 2 oval shapes from your black paper. These are going to be the ears. Glue the ears and the popsicle stick on the back of the paper plate.


Let the mask dry and then you're little sheep is free to play. Baa!!
