These instructions are for how to make a simple paper lion.
This lion is a movable puppet, its head able to move from side to side.
This craft involves paper cutting, painting, and glueing and is easy enough for your child to make. However, an adult will need to push the brad through the paper and operate the hot glue gun to attach the lion’s face to the brad.
We set our lion in a long grass scene made from strips of paper painted with watercolours.
