*The twins are 25 months actual, 23 months adjusted
This was a fun activity for a cold, rainy afternoon during our farm unit.
To set it up, I just needed a few supplies that I already had on hand; Contact paper, tape, white pompoms, and a marker. I printed a sheep coloring page from the web (do a search for “sheep template” or “sheep printable”), traced it onto the Contact paper with a permanent marker, and taped it sticky-side-out onto a window.
At first, my little ones just explored the paper and the sheep, naming all the sheep’s body parts and touching exclaiming over the sticky paper.
Then I scattered a bag of white pompoms in a variety of sizes across the window sill. The twins began sticking them on the paper right away, chattering about the “soft balls” and baa-ing like little sheep.
My little guy liked the tiny poms the most- he called them “eyes” and tried them on for size a few times.
Sweet baby fingers 😉
Fun farm fine motor and sticky sensory play. Say that three times fast!
*Thank you Craft Project Ideas.com for the white pompoms*
