In this project, I gave each student a pre-cut lion body which was made out of cardboard paper. This way, the lion head will have more support when put together and students can easily decorate the body with construction paper or fabric of their choice. My favourite part about this craft is that children can use Q-tips and paint their own decorations (dots or patterns) on the lion’s head.
Here are some vibrant examples!
