The Little Lost Sheep

Use this Little Lost Sheep craft to help your preschoolers know they’re special to God.


Say: Once there was a shepherd who had 100 sheep. He always took good care of his sheep. Every day, the shepherd took his sheep to eat grass from the pasture and drink water from the stream. Every night, the shepherd counted his sheep as they went into the sheepfold. One night, the shepherd discovered that one of this sheep was missing. He left the other sheep to go look for it. Finally, the shepherd found his sheep. He pulled it from the bush and carried it home on his shoulders. The shepherd was so happy that he’d found his sheep! He invited all his friends to come and celebrate with him. Jesus is like that good shepherd. He’ll take care of us and keep us safe, just like the shepherd took care of his sheep.

Love Lambs (craft)

Draw a simple sheep shape on a sheet of paper. Set out cotton balls and glue sticks. Hold up a cotton ball and complete the sentence, “You’re special because…” Tell something that’s special about each child, such as “You’re a good helper.” Then dip the cotton ball in glue, and stick it inside the sheep shape. Allow children to add cotton balls, telling what’s special about you and about each other. Continue until you have a fluffy reminder that you’re all God’s special sheep.
