Painting cardboard sheep with structure

A super fun idea to make a sheep with fun dyeing techniques! Guest parent Ineke van der Linde prepare all kinds of activities for her children in the shelter. So she can experience for herself whether the idea is workable for the children. And she knows more if the materials are suitable to make something with them that she has in mind.

The basis of a craft is especially often reuse. So many materials you can use low budget . Then it is nice to have materials that you can use child-friendly and responsible. Ineke made a sheep out of cardboard. Then she created structures (with a spatula) to give the sheep a kind of fleecy fur. With the 3D liner you turn on the edges of padded, which adds extra depth to your craft work. With the paint comb, she also makes blades of grass in the sheep's tray. So you see, it's not just painting, but also trying to mimic things and experience with these tools how it can be! Really playing learning so for kids.
