Let’s Make a Moving Eyes Spring Lamb!
Paint the Template
Color in the chick template with whichever medium you like: it could be paints, crayons or pens.
And if you’re feeling super creative, why not add some extra flourishes to your spring lamb’s floral crown? You could stick on some scrunched up crepe paper, or even add some eco glitter!
Cut out the Lamb Elements
Once you’ve finished coloring in your lamb and everything is dry, carefully cut out the elements from the template.
Create Supporting Strips
Cut one strip lengthwise from a sheet of yellow A4 card – it needs to be the same thickness as the rectangle eyes on the template.
Next, cut two more thin strips of card, each three or four inches long. Now you have everything you need ready to assemble your lamb!
Secure the Eyes to a Strip of Card
Stick the rectangle eyes into the middle of the large strip of yellow cardstock.
Add Supporting Strips
Turn your lamb over. Now stick one of the thinner card strips vertically over the left eye – this will support her moving eyes. Stick the other strip in the same way over the right eye.
Slide the Eye Strip
Now carefully slide the strip of eyes underneath the two thin support strips – be gentle!
The Moving Eyes Lamb Craft is Complete
Turn her back over and baa baa – she’s ready to play! Why not help her look around for a bunch of spring flowers, or maybe even some Easter eggs?
