For those of you who didn’t know, I am a mama by day and a freelance illustrator by night (and nap time!). The other night as I was finishing up a project to send over to a client, I came across this little lamb sketch that I did a few years ago. With springtime and Easter on my mind, I instantly thought up an adorable craft that my little Tommy could make using this drawing as a base. Of course, no Easter craft involving fluffy white baby animals would be complete without a bunny, so I whipped up a little bunny drawing to go along with it!
For this project, you will need:
- Little Lamb & Little Bunny (<—click the links to download .pdf files)
- Printer (with black ink or toner… no color printer necessary)
- White 8.5 x 11″ printer paper (or card stock)
- Cotton Balls
- Liquid Glue
- Stickers & markers (or whatever you want to use to decorate your picture)
To make it:
- Grown-up: Print the Little Lamb and Little Bunny .pdf files. (I printed on white card stock to make this a little more sturdy to withstand the glue and weight of the cotton balls.)
- Grown-up & Child: Squiggle some glue onto the body of the little lamb and let your little one help place cotton ball “wool” all over to make the lamb cute and fluffy.
- Child: Decorate your picture with colorful stickers, color the background, and add words or designs to make it your own.
- Repeat steps 2-3 with the Little Bunny printout.
