I love Spring! It makes me feel all warm inside and super excited for the warm, sunny weather! It feels like this last Winter has been a really long one so I am incredibly glad that the days are already getting a little longer.
One of the things that you can’t escape living here in Wales are sheep – which invariably bring gorgeous lambs each Spring! The cutest, sweetest little animals. I cannot help but think of Spring time when you see them bouncing around the fields here! I thought to mark the first day of Spring it would be a nice idea to do a lamb themed craft with the kids. (This craft is also a brilliant activity for Easter time).
To make your fingerprint lambs you will need – paint (your colour choice – we used silver), coloured paper, plain paper, glue and felt tip pens.
Begin by finger printing onto plain paper the shape of your lambs body.
Once you have filled your body shape with prints leave to dry. Cut out shapes from coloured paper (we used pink) to be the four legs, head and tail. Glue them onto your lambs body and add eyes. We used eye stickers but you could use googly eyes or draw them on.
Finally add a mouth and make a bow from coloured paper to stick onto the lambs neck.
My son and daughter made quite a few of these cute lambs! They really enjoyed this simple activity and are already planning on turning some into Easter cards for family and friends. A very simple but effective idea for Spring time and Easter!
