What you’ll need: white card stock, cotton swabs, scissors, glue, small wooden spring clothespins, and markers.

Creation instructions:

  • Pre-cut large ovals (for the lamb’s body) and small ovals (for the lamb’s head) from the card stock.
  • Also pre-cut the cotton swab heads, leaving ½-inch of the stick on the swab.
  • Have kids glue cotton swabs to the body, starting at the back, then layering them until they reach the opposite side.
  • Use two swabs to form ears on the head and markers to draw a face.
  • Glue the head to the body and two clothespins to the back of the body to form legs.

Read aloud John 10:27 and talk about how Jesus takes care of children as a shepherd cares for sheep.
