Hi everyone! Today’s hand print art letter of the week craft is G is for Goat.
5 Fun Facts about Goats:
- Male goats are called bucks while female goats are called does. Baby goats are called kids.
- A group of goats is called a ‘trip of goats’.
- They do not have upper front teeth. Instead they have a hard gum pad.
- They have rectangular-shaped pupils allowing them to see things on the side of them without turning their head.
- Some can jump as high as five feet!
Instructions for making the Hand Print Goat:
Make a brown handprint on a sheet of construction paper.
Add a brown thumbprint under the thumb – this makes the head area.
Use the pinky finger to make a tail.
Cut 2 small pieces from a pipe cleaner and glue it to the top of the goat’s head. These are the horns.
Cut another small piece off from the pipe cleaner. Glue on as the beard.
Glue on a tiny googly eye or draw one on.
Draw on the nose, mouth, and hooves with a black marker.
We used both mini crafts sticks and regular sized ones to make the fence. It is not necessary to use both sizes. Alternatively, you could instead draw a fence on or create one from pipe cleaners.
Write ‘G is for Goat’ at the top.
