Art is not my strong point so I find it easier to copy a picture. Google images helps with this! I copied a picture of a sheep from google images onto the non-sticky side of contact paper. I used a black permanent pen as I didn’t know if a normal pen would leave a mark on the window.
I peeled the backing paper off of the contact paper and sellotaped the corners of the contact paper to the window with the sticky side facing towards me.
I filled a container with cotton wool balls and demonstrated to Adam how to put the cotton wool balls onto the sheep.
He got the hang of it but after he placed each ball onto the sheep he had to ‘count’ them all.
He got to 11 cotton wool balls before he realised he could remove the cotton wool balls! It didn’t take long before he removed them all.
So the activity changed. Adam would push a cotton wool ball onto the sheep but then remove it so only a little cotton wool was left.
Our sheep may look a little bare but Adam loved it!
