Staple those two strips together. Depending on size of the child's head, you may need a third strip.

Have your child cut black blobs to be used as cow spots - it's a great way to practice cutting! Imperfection is great! Then simply glue the black spots onto the long white strip.

For the ears, cut two rounded triangles out of white paper. Cut the same shape but smaller out of pink paper. Glue the pink on top of the white.
