31 Days of Activities Based on Children's Books- Where Is The Green Sheep?

Today we read the book, "Where Is the Green Sheep?" by Mem Fox and Judy Horacek. This is an adorable book about opposites and has a fun recurring question. (Where is the Green Sheep?) I work in child care and have read this to groups of children ages 2-4. They all seem to love it!

After we read the book, I got Aubrey set up to create her own green sheep.
First, she colored her sheep and then she cut it out. (I printed it off here.)

 After she cut out the sheep, I had her color the cotton balls and then glue them on.

  Aubreys' green sheep!

Once the green sheep was finished, I had her wait in the house and I hid the green sheep. (I chose to hide the sheep outside because the marker seemed a little moist on the cotton balls.)

The hidden green sheep!
Here she comes!

She found it!!

She found the sheep and then my girls took turns hiding and finding the sheep. They had a blast!

Supplies We Used-
Green Marker
Cotton Balls
