July 18th is Cow Appreciation Day!

While Chick-fil-A celebrated Cow appreciation on July 13th by offering free chicken to people who dressed up as cows, the real, true, honest to goodness cow appreciation day is July 18th. In rural communities all around the country, folks will participate in activities such as butter and ice cream making competitions and  “Cowlege Bowls” where contestants answer questions about cows and dairy farming for prizes. And don’t forget a riveting game of Dairy Bingo! Cow costume judging, “mooing” contests and cow arts and crafts will be the order of the day. So what will you do for Official Cow Appreciation Day?

How to Make a Cow Using a Clay Pot

Make this cute cow using a terra cotta clay pot and a few other supplies.

Materials Needed:

Wipe down your terra cotta pot with a damp cloth and let dry completely.

Turn the clay pot upside down and paint the clay pot and wooden ball head white. Put them aside to dry,

Once the paint is dry, glue the wooden ball onto the bottom of the clay pot. Paint a nose, eyes, and mouth on the wooden ball. I also painted black spots on the cow head and body. For the face of my cow in the photos, I used simple rub-on decals! Once all your paint is dry, spray it with the clear acrylic sealer.

Cut ears and horns out of craft foam and glue them in place. Cut two feet out of craft foam, and glue them onto the bottom edge of the clay pot. Your cow is now complete.
