Extra Tips

  • Make a colored sheep by using some colored cotton balls. To make colored cotton balls, soak some cotton balls in water mixed with paint (1:1). Leave it soaked for a few minutes, then let it airdry overnight.
  • If you don’t have some googly eyes, then that’s fine. You may use some small beads or cut 2 small circular pieces of white paper, then draw a pupil on each of them.
