Just take your white lunch bag and stuff it with some newspaper to make
it stand up. Fold the top over and staple. Print the sheep template out
and cut out the head, arms, legs and the square paper with the words
"The Parable Of The Lost Sheep Luke 15:1-7" on it. Tape the sheep head
to the top of the bag or you can staple it on. Take the arms and legs
and fold them back and forth accordion style to make the crinkles in the
paper. Then tape on the arms and the legs. Then tape you words to the
middle of the sheep on his stomach.
