Our paper plate & popcorn sheep craft tutorial is one of the simplest kids craft idea EVER! Perfect for the littlest crafter to recreate this spring!
- Popped Popcorn
- School Glue
- Black Craft Paint
- Foam Paint Brush
- Large or Small Paper Plate
- Black Cardstock Paper
- White Cardstock Paper
- Kid Friendly Scissors
- Hand-Held Office Stapler
- Large Wiggle Eyes
- The first step is to paint the paper plate completely black. Just simply squirt some paint in the center and use the foam paint brush.
- Go ahead and cut out TWO stick legs from the black cardstock and staple them onto the painted paper plate.
- When done with that step, grab the popped popcorn and the school glue.
- Drizzle a good amount ALL over the painted paper plate.
- Now ask your child to add the popcorn on top of the plate until it’s completely covered. You can add more glue if they need it. BTW – instead of covering the plate with glue, you could also put the glue in a bowl and ask your child to dip each popcorn piece in the glue, then attach to the plate.
- While your child is attaching their popcorn to the plate, you can go ahead and cut out your sheep’s head out of the black & white cardstock.
- At this point in time add the wiggle eyes to the head piece.
- Finally – the last step for this paper plate sheep craft! Put some glue on the back of the head piece and gently lay it on the decorated paper plate.
- And that’s it! Carefully walk away from your craft and allow it to dry completely before you touch it.
