How does a sheep get clean? ...He takes a baaaath! My daughter ate a Laffy Taffy with that silly joke on it this afternoon. We giggled at the joke and then smiled at how it coincided perfectly with all of the sheep-themed activities we've been doing this week. This dyed cotton ball sheep craft is our last activity for the week. It's so fluffy and fun and it goes along perfectly with the nursery rhyme Baa, Baa Black Sheep or as a cute Easter or spring craft for kids.
