Homeschooling Fun: DIY Lion

I’m planning to read Eric Carle’s From Head to Toe

for our playdate this week, and decided to look for a simple movable animal craft, to go along with it. 

I found this movable lion craft and thought it looked simple enough for our toddlers (and mums) to work on.

Materials Needed 

Movable Lion Craft Template White/Yellow/Orange A4-sized construction paper Two small googly eyes Two brads/split pins Double-sided tape Coloured pencils Printer

Instructions

1. Print the movable lion craft template on the white/yellow/orange A4-sized construction paper.

4. Stick the googly eyes onto the lion’s face.

5. Use the brads to attach the lion’s mane and tail onto the lion’s body.

6. Use double-sided tape to attach the lion’s face to the lion’s mane, making sure that the chin covers the brad below. Tip: The double-sided tape should be placed on the top part of the lion’s face, so that chin area over the brad isn’t sticky.
