Project Monday

Here is a little school project we worked on today. I got the idea out of a cute little Bible craft workbook I use. After they make the craft, you talk about how shepherds take care of sheep in the same way that God takes care of us--he guides us, provides our food and shelter, keeps us safe, and so on. It is a cute little activity that teaches a Biblical lesson while also practicing counting skills.


1 egg carton, cut lengthwise to make 2 6-cup "feed troughs"
cotton balls
black construction paper or felt, cut into small triangles
black puffy paint
Sharpie marker
small snacks such as cheerios, goldfish, etc.


Glue 2 cotton balls together to make a head and a body, then glue the body of the cotton onto one side of the egg carton--one cotton per egg cup. Glue two triangles onto each "head" cotton ball to make ears. Use the puffy paint to create 2 eyes and a nose on each "head" ball. After all the glue is dry, label each cup 1-6. Then, have the child count out their snacks to "feed" the sheep-- 1 cracker in cup #1, 2 in cup#2, 3 in #3, and so on. After the activity is complete, they can eat the sheep food!
