Lion Craft Activities

In the last blog article we listed some Fun Facts about lions.  We also had a free download of a lion coloring page for the kids (or you) to color.  In this blog we want to share some of our favorite craft activities that we found on the web that are simple and fun to do.  There was so much to choose from – it was hard to make a decision!

This lion paper plate is too cute!  I love the googly eyes.  We found this at Keeper of the Memories site.


How much fun this is to paint with a fork!  We found this at Crafty Morning.  While you are at her site, check out all of the other animals you can paint!


Next time the leaves fall, grab some to make this clever lion!  You can get the instructions and lion face template from Easy Peasy and Fun.


Have some spare paper lunch bags laying around? Then get ready to turn them into some lion puppets. Use our free lion paper bag puppet pattern designed by The Tucson Puppet Lady herself!  It’s a great activity for the kids to color, cut out, glue and then play with.

Need a puppet with a moving mouth and makes expressions?  We’ve got the pattern!

And if you are really bitten by the craft bug, you can use our Lion Puppet Sewing Pattern to make your own puppet. It is available as a digital download so you can start sewing immediately. We recommend using fleece and felt fabrics because they are inexpensive and readily available from craft stores. Customers tell us how easy our step by step patterns (with lots of pictures) are to follow especially after watching the video tutorials.  In fact you can watch our free video tutorial on how to sew the lion puppet right now!

what our customers are saying:

“I love her patterns.  Pattern well written and easy to follow.”

“I love how the puppet turned out.  Please keep the patterns coming!”

NEXT BLOG FEATURES BOOKS AND FREE PUPPET PATTERN

In our next blog, we’ll be sharing a few books which feature lions that preschoolers (and older kids) enjoy. The books range from fact to fiction. We’ll also have a free pattern download for a free lion hand puppet. You don’t even have to know how to sew, the whole puppet can be made using a hot glue gun. Stay tuned to our blog to get your free download.
