The Good Shepherd

The kids and I have been talking about the Good Shepherd with our Preschool Lessons. They understand that a shepherd takes care of his flock as his own children, tending to their needs, protecting them from harm, and they trust and follow him always. But if one sheep were to go astray, he would leave the 99 to seek the lost one. He would risk his life for them. John 10
The Letter G craft is Good Shepherd, and as I’ve mentioned – the kids are really excited about sheep lately. So we made these adorable sheep on paper plates, with cotton balls, black paper and googly eyes. They turned out quite cute! If you’re not keen on cutting this face shape, go to this website for a printout of a sheep face.
I then decided we need a shepherd, so with construction paper, scissors and a glue stick, and googly eyes of course… Here’s Jesus – The Good Shepherd!
White construction paper, 1 sheet cut diagonally for arms. Glue all white together. 1 red sheet cut in two for his sash, optional fringe at bottom. Hands and face cut from light tan. 1 brown sheet is enough for His hair and beard (overlays the face), and thin strips for the staff. Wrap outstretched hand around staff. Any leftover brown can be used for sandals. Place stick-on googly eyes and draw in face with pencil. Added a foam letter G for my preschooler.
Of course, Shaun the Sheep and Timmy Time are the perfect series of shows for preschoolers featuring sheep.
