L is for Lion

 Who needs to wait for Halloween to dress up like a lion? Here's a fun deviation from the paper plate lion heads we did last year. Instead of using a paper plate, use a picture of the child. 

Now that's one cute lion!

Here's What You Need:
  • 1 X 6 orange strips
  • large photo of the child's face
  • glue
  • scissors
  • markers
  • construction paper
Here's What You Do:
  1. Cut out the child's face and glue it onto the construction paper. For younger lions, draw a circle around the face to give them a guide where to glue the paper strips.
  2. Glue the orange paper strips around the face by only putting glue at one end of the strip.
  3. Draw a lion nose a whiskers. 
  4. Use scissors to carefully curl the strips like you would curling ribbon. 
** Update: If you curl the paper around a pencil instead of with scissors, it gives a more coiffed look like the cowardly lion in the Wizard of Oz. I like it much better.
