Beware of allergies - make sure it is safe for the children in your group to handle and taste the food used in this activity.

You will need:
Pre-made popcorn
A large bowl
One or two plastic cups
Individual sandwich bags - enough for one per child
Five clothes pegs per child
A sheep's face (see Printables)
Sticky tac
Colouring pencils and/or felt-tips

How to prepare:
Print or photocopy sufficient 'sheep faces' for one per child. Roughly cut out the faces. Make a sample sheep so that the children know what they are making. Tip the popcorn into a large bowl.

How to make:

1. Encourage each child to colour in and cut out a 'sheep's face'.

2. Help each child to put two cupfuls of popcorn into a sandwich bag.

3. Clip the bag closed with a clothes peg.

4. Attach the sheep's face to the peg with a small amount of sticky tac.

5. Clip the remaining pegs to the bag to look like the sheep's legs then stand the sheep upright.
