Lion Mask Template {Free Printable}

Whether you are looking for a craft to go with your safari unit study or looking for something do make just for fun, kids will love making their own lion mask!

These lion masks are so easy to make and kids will have fun playing with them all day long!


Make Your Own Lion Mask

Making your own mask is not only a fun craft for kids but it’s a great way to keep their imaginations going even after the crafting is finished.

Plus, this hands on project is a great way to get kids interested in learning about different animals in the wild.

Keep the learning going after the craft is finished by going to the library and checking out some books on lions or even on safari animals in general.

This way kids can use what they learn about lions while playing with their masks, helping to reinforce the new and fun information even more!

I also like using this particular mask when talking with kids about emotional control.

It’s a tough subject for them to grasp, but putting on a lion mask and roaring brings home emotions like anger and aggression.

The best way to teach kids is to let them take a break from all the reading and writing to show them just how much fun learning can be!
