Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Get Your Wool and Your Equipment You Need Ready
First roll your wool into this shape. No matter how long or how short it is, you can still make a ball.
Step 2: WATCH YOUR FINGERS! IVE BEEN POKED ALOT BY THE NEEDLE SO BE CAREFUL EVERYONE!
Then start poking the felting needle into the roll of wool to start shaping it. The more you poke it the more harder and better it will get. Making the wool too loose will lose all its shape and it will be impossible to sculpt. Take your time and all will be fine.
Step 3: And You're Done!
You can also make more things with just one ball of wool. You can make anything from a sheep to a necklace!
Step 4: My Ones
Oh, and here are my examples of what I used the balls for:
Yellow: Pikachu's head (from Pokémon)
Purple: Blaze the cat (from Sonic The Hedgehog)
It was hard to make them all perfect so I just rushed it and it turned out to be as perfect as I wanted them to be.
