In his second grade Animal Science PACE, there was a craft to go along with what he had been learning. The PACE is about sheep and lambs, and how Jesus is our Good Shepherd. I have learned that shepherd is spelled with two e's and no a's, and my second grader has learned that shepherd is spelled with a ph, not an hp. So, bring on the craft! and yes, we were having snack also.
We were supposed to use a paper grocery sack, but who has those anymore? I cut a mailing envelope in half and taped down the corners and it worked just fine. And here he is, my little lost sheep, telling the story from Luke 15.
I have to admit, I'm not a huge fan of crafts at home--it is strange, because I love doing crafts, I just don't like the craft in pieces scattered throughout the house two weeks later. Big crafts, I have learned, to take a picture of and then we toss it after three or so days. Little crafts (paper crafts, mostly) we tape onto one of the walls for a while. When it falls off (or there's no more room), we take a picture and throw it away.

All that to say that I'm glad we made the sheep head. It was fun. And doesn't he look (and sound) so cute!

That sheep mask is hilarious! I don't think I could have kept a straight face! Great idea.
