- Cut out a sheep shape from cardboard. You can get a very simple coloring page and blow it up to be a pattern. We made ours in various sizes. (We cut out some patterns and put them on the table on the right of the picture.)
- Spray paint the cardboard white. Let it dry. Spray paint the other side of the cardboard. Let it dry.
- Cut PVC pipe to make 4 legs per sheep. The length depends on the size of the sheep.
- Put black duct tape around the bottom of the PVC pipes to be the hooves.
- Hot glue the top 1/4 to 1/2 of each PVC pipe leg to the white cardboard. Make sure the legs are all glued at the same height so the sheep will stand up.
- Get some quilt batting. Cut out the same sheep shape but also cut out a small place for the face. (Cut out two pieces per sheep.)
- Using spray adhesive, glue the batting to the cardboard on both sides of the cardboard sheep.
- Draw eyes with a permanent marker.

A really sweet friend showed me how to make these sheep. I made several and used them in lessons on David, the Shepherd and Jesus, the Good Shepherd.
