Cow Craft for Preschoolers

I made this cow craft to go with a preschool Bible lesson on Pharaoh’s dream with the fat and skinny cows.  This could certainly work with a letter C lesson, farm animals lesson, milk lesson, cowboys lesson, along with so many more.

I am not known for my artistic ability.  Quite the opposite, in fact.  In college, my art professor called my paper mache animal “road kill”.  I made an A on it because we were graded according to our ability level.  That means that across the board, everything I turned in that semester was “road kill” quality work.

I went looking for a cow craft to do with a terrific group of kids.  I couldn’t really find anything that I liked so I created this.  I actually drew this myself.  I thought I did a pretty good job, but my self-confidence in artistic things is so low that I brought this to each member of my family and asked, “What animal is this?”  You have no idea how relieved and delighted I was to hear each person answer, “Cow?”.

Okay, so they each believed that I had completely lost my mind, but, nevertheless, my drawing looks like a cow.  When they have me committed, at least I’ll have the peace of knowing that I can draw a cow.  Just kidding.

Cut out the nose and head.  Raise the nose over the head until it is placed where you like it.  Glue pieces to construction paper.  Cut out ears and horns, place, and glue.  That’s it.
