Easter Lambs

The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! ~ John 1:29

With Easter just a week away, EJ and I have been preparing for the holiday by making crafts, reading books and enjoying some new Easter toys. I want our focus to be on Jesus resurrection and fortunately there are many wonderful ways to do that. With the following craft we learn how Jesus is the Lamb of God.

I saw these sweet little lambs here on and was excited to make our own little flock.

They use items that are probably already in your house and this is also a great way to use up extra yarn you may have left over from other projects.

This is all you need to start:

Cut the cardboard in various kidney shapes (between two and four inches) and paint the smaller end of the kidney black for the sheep's face. Then also paint the top of your clothespins black as well.

Once the paint has dried, attach the clothespins to the cardboard and then start wrapping the yarn around the bodies. Wrap until everything is covered and you have the desired body shape. Finally cut small ears out of felt and glue to the head.

The sheep are ready to be displayed!
