Easy paper plate lion craft

DLTK's Crafts for Kids
Easy Lion Paper Plate Craft

Contributed by Leanne Guenther

I've had a lot of requests for more paper plate crafts.  This king of the jungle is made with a paper plate.  I've provided templates for dinner sized and snack sized plates.  If you don't have paper plates, don't fret!  Just take a regular plate and trace it onto a piece of cardboard (old cereal boxes work great!) or use a margarine/ice cream container lid.

You can easily make a mask, by leaving off the eyes and cutting holes.  Attach (glue and tape) a popsicle stick or unsharpened pencil to the bottom for the child to hold it to their face.

Older children may prefer the toilet paper roll version (Age 3+) or the paper folding version (Age 6+) as they are each more challenging (although some days it's nice to have an easy craft on hand when supper's running a bit late!)
