In Like a Lion Paper Plate Craft
Materials per lion:
- White paper plate
- Yellow paint
- Paint brush
- Craft glue
- A pair of wiggly eyes
- A small scrap of black card stock or black felt
- Black felt tip permanent marker
- 3 sheets of yellow tissue paper
1. Paint the front of the paper plate yellow with the paint brush, then set it aside to dry.
2. While the paper plate is drying, cut about 30 to 35 squares from the yellow tissue paper measuring about 4 inches by 4 inches wide.
3. Stick your finger in the middle of each tissue paper square, and wrap the tissue paper up onto your finger (see photo). Apply a small dot of glue to the tip of the tissue paper wrapped finger. Stick the tissue paper to the front (painted side) of the outside edge of the paper plate. Keep applying the squares until you get all the way around the outside of the paper plate.
4. Stick the wiggly eyes on the lions face about 1/3 from the top.
5. Cut out a small (about 1 inch) triangle from a scrap piece of black card stock or felt.
6. Use a black permanent fine tip marker to draw the lions mouth.
March Lamb Craft
- Black construction paper or card stock
- White construction paper or card stock
- Cotton balls (3-4 per lamb)
- 2~ 3″ twigs or sticks per lamb
- Pair of wiggly eyes per lamb
- Lamb Craft Pattern
1. Print and cut out the Lamb Craft Pattern (link above).
2. Trace around the lambs face on black or white construction paper or card stock, and cut out.
3. Trace around the lambs body on white construction paper or card stock and cut out.
4. Have the kids tear the cotton balls into smaller pieces.
5. Let the kids glue 3-4 cotton ball pieces to the top of the lamb’s head, and add the wiggly eyes to his face, then set the lambs face aside.
6. Let the kids spread glue on the lambs body, and glue the rest of the cotton ball pieces to the body. For younger kids, you may want to do one section at a time.
7. Flip the lamb’s body over, and glue the twigs to the side you want to be the bottom of the lamb. Glue the twig legs so they are about half on, half off the body. Set the lamb’s body aside to let the legs dry for a few minutes.
8. Flip the lamb’s body back over, and use plenty of glue to add the face.
