Five White and Fluffy Sheep
(tune: Five Green and Speckled Frogs)
Five white and fluffy sheep
In the pasture fast asleep.
Their wool kept them warm all night long.
The Farmer ran away with one,
Sheared her wool till he was done
Now there are four white fluffy sheep.
I made the bodies of the sheep from a heathery brown felt. I had thought about lt. pink but decided against it when I found this felt. The tail, heads, and both sets of legs are cut and glued on. I used black slick fabric paint for the line between the legs and the face. Of course the silly google eyes make the sheep look so funny when the farmer 'shears' each little sheep. I cut cotton balls in half so that I had that curly look and so it wasn't too fluffy. I glued them to a piece of felt to make the fleece. You can see that I covered their eyes so that they can be sleeping and after they are sheared they are wide awake! Baaaa!
Sheep are a lot of fun at Storytime!
