Lost Sheep Craft to Make With Your Sunday School Students

lost sheep craft

This lost sheep craft is adorable, and children will love it! They’ll want to take this Sunday school craft home and show everyone. In fact, they’ll want to take it to school and show everyone, too. This project is ideal for that purpose because it’s more than just a craft. It’s also a game!

For a children’s ministry lesson about Jesus’ Parable of the Lost Sheep, children will have fun making this cute craft. Then the fun continues! Kids can hide the sheep under one of the cups. Next they mix up the cups and let someone guess where the sheep is.

Supplies you’ll need:
Pom Poms (1-2″ white)
Felt (Black)
Wiggly Eyes
Bathroom Cups

How to Make a Lost Sheep Craft

Follow these easy steps. (See the video below for a demonstration.)

First, cut out a sheep face with ears from black felt. I used regular felt and glued later. But using sticky-back felt might work even better.

Second, glue the wiggle eyes onto the sheep’s face.

Third, glue the head with eyes onto the pom pom. (Or stick it, if you use the sticky-back felt.)

Finally, set out your set of three cups and hide the sheep under one. Mix the cups around and see if someone watching can find the sheep.

See a demonstration here. (Please ignore the dead poinsettia in the background!)

Scripture Reference for a Lost Sheep Craft

“Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Doesn’t he leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’ I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.” Luke 15:4-7
