Step 1: Place the cup of flour into a small mixing bowl.
Step 2: Slowly add the water until you get a smooth, thick, sticky consistency
Step 3: Let your little one apply the glue with their fingers while painting the little sheep white. (How does the glue feel? Allow them to explore the different textures. Explain that the glue is sticky, wet, gooey,slimy)
Step 4: Once the glue has been applied stick on the sheep’s wool using the cotton wool balls. (Now ask how does the cotton wool feel? It’s soft, fluffy,light)
What noise does the Sheep make? Baa Baa!
