Lion Craft for Kids
The lion craft can be used when planning a whole slew of unit studies, from a zoo unit study to a lesson on Africa or wild, safari animals.
Combine this craft with some of the others that we offer in our Freebies Library to practice word recognition and more!
Recycled Lion Craft
One of the reasons I love this craft is that it doesn’t require a lot of materials. And, the materials that it does require are recycled from other crafts and other uses.
Who knew toilet paper roll crafts were going to become the go-to crafts this year?!
Christian Lion Craft
Another way that you could introduce this craft is as a Christian craft during Sunday School or Vacation Bible School.
The toilet paper roll lion can easily be turned into a “Daniel in the Lion’s Den Craft” where you share the story of Daniel and his unwavering faith, even in the midst of hungry lions.
