Make a Lion!

Materials needed:

  • Paper plates
  • Orange or brown yarn
  • Brown paint or crayons
  • Glue
  • Construction paper in assorted colors

    What to do

    Step One  First have your child color or paint two paper plates brown.

    Step Two  Then she should glue bunched-up strands of yarn to the rim of the plate. This will be the lion's mane.

    Step Three  Next have her cut out eyes, a nose, and a mouth from the construction paper.

    Step Four  Have her glue in the eyes, nose, and mouth.

    Step Five  Help her align the face of the lion on top of the other colored plate so that they overlap.

    Step Six  Glue the face in place -- now the lion has a body!

    Step Seven  Draw and cut out a tail and legs and glue them to the rest of the body.
