The Cow Loves Cookies

11 Oct

When I’m hungry, what do I think about? Cookies. And what do cookies remind me of? Milk. And of course milk is going to remind me of cows. Then all of a sudden out of nowhere I’m thinking about cows eating cookies. Seems quite logical to me, so here’s a craft that’s a cow eating cookies!

Supplies required: Scissors, cardstock or cardboard, pink construction paper, print outs of your favourite cookies, googly eyes, black marker, white glue and cow pattern fabric.

The Cows Loves Cookies

Step 1: Copy and cut out the templates provided.
Step 2: Trace and cut out the head and body templates on both the cardstock/cardboard and the cow patterned fabric. Trace and cut out two ears and a tail out of just the cow pattern and trace and cut out the nose from the pink construction paper.
Step 3: Glue the head pieces and body pieces together.
Step 4: Glue the two ear pieces out to the side on the top back of the head with the fabric pattern facing out.
Step 5: Glue the tail piece on top of the body piece.
Step 6: Draw two short parallel lines on the pink construction paper for nostrils. Then glue the nose onto the cows head opposite of the ears.
Step 7: Glue the googly eyes onto the cow’s head.
Step 8: Glue the head to the body.
Step 9: Find an image of your or your child’s favourite cookies. Print them and cut them out.
Step 10: Glue the cookies to the underside of the cow’s head, sticking out just enough to make it look as if the cookies are in the cow’s mouth.

TemplateNow you have a craft to make just before snack time (or to use as an excuse to eat some cookies). What’s great about this craft is that children will get a tactile experience with the fabric and that each cow will be different.

  1. I think that what you published made a ton of sense.
    However, think on this, suppose you added a little content?
    I ain’t suggesting your information isn’t good., but what if you added a title that makes people want more?
    I mean The Cow Loves Cookies | Mrs. Arts & Mr. Crafts is a little boring.
    You might look at Yahoo’s front page and see how they create post titles to get viewers interested. You might add a video or a pic or two to get people excited about what you’ve
    got to say. In my opinion, it could make your posts
    a little livelier.
