We all remember learning about farm animals with the famous “Old MacDonald”, here’s a great way to incorporate crafts into that song – and into learning about farm animals.

Help the kids learn the sounds these animals make as they actually create the animals.

These are great learning tools, but can also be used as toys to play with afterwards. Some fun farm animal puppets! If you like puppets check out my paper bag animals

Baaaaaa!! Toilet Paper Roll Sheep

Which animal makes that noise? 

We use it’s fur for clothing and many other things. They are tiny and fluffy, until we shave their coat. But no worries, they just grow a new one.

Step #1:

Stretch apart a few cotton balls, take small pieces and ball them up. In essence we are making tiny cotton balls. Glue those tiny cotton balls all around the toilet paper roll.

Step #2:

Gllue googly eyes onto a larger black pom pom. Glue this on the cotton balls. 

Step #3:

Glue four smaller pom poms onto the bottom of the toilet paper roll for feet.

What Animal Is It?

Good job! You guessed it, that noise is a sheep! And now you have created one too! One of my favorite farm crafts for kids! Check out my sheep puppet craft for more fluffy fun!

Cut out a strip of white paper (as wide as your toilet paper roll). Using black marker, draw spots all over the white paper. 

Glue this paper around your toilet paper roll.

Glue googly eyes to the face and glue the head on one side of the body, and the tail on the opposite.

Add some pink in its ears and a smile, for added details.

Step #1:

Cut a strip of pink construction paper, as wide as your toilet paper roll. Glue this around the roll.

Step #2:

Step #3:

Curl a piece of pink construction around a pencil. Once it is nice and curly, glue it to the opposite side of the roll, for your piggy tail.

Our last farm crafts for kids critter is full of feathers and usually a little more noisy than the rest! They also give us tasty eggs for our breakfast. I have lots of cute chick crafts if you like this! This is definitely one of those farm crafts for toddlers. 

Step #1:

Cut out a strip of yellow paper, as wide as your toilet paper roll. Glue this around the roll.

Step #2:

Cut out another strip of yellow, this time cut feather shapes out of one end. Glue it to the back of the roll.

Step #3:

Create two feet out of a pipe cleaner, glue these to the bottom. Also, bend a V shape from another small piece of the pipe cleaner and glue this for a beak.

Glue googly eyes above the beak.
