This adorable chalkboard Eid Mubarak Sheep Magnet is such a great addition to our Ramadan magnet wall on our refrigerator. She is keeping the Crescent Moon Magnet company!
Please read through all the directions before you start as this is a long craft and does take a lot of drying times. Allow extra time in your day to accommodate all the steps.
It’s easier to start by cutting the wood sticks in half for the legs. Please have an adult do this part. The sticks actually only took a tiny bit of pressure to cut halfway through, and then I just snapped them in half. The part that you are cutting will be behind the sheep, so a clean cut is not necessary.
Paint all the wood pieces white. And make sure to put newspaper down. We forgot to grab it before we got started so that is why you don’t see it on the supply list above :). Wait for everything to dry.
A little note about the painters tape I put on the chalkboard: Don’t do it. Instead, find a small brush and help your child stay within the lines. As you an see from the final pictures, the painter’s tape tore off a lot of the chalkboard. And that is why I took it off the supply list.
Place the smaller heart on top of the bigger heart and glue it upside down with wood glue in the upper right corner. Take two of the petals and glue them behind the larger heart to look like ears. Allow everything to dry.
Flip the sheep over and glue down the four legs and use the final petal for the tail in the opposite corner from the head. Allow everything to dry.
Place the self sticking magnet on the back of your sheep.
