In Like a Lion?

Our theme this week is weather in March.  I explained to Hailey that the weather in March can be referred to as a lion or a lamb and we talked about examples of each kind of weather.  We decided that we were definitely in the middle of some lion like weather and made a lion for our craft.

You’ll need a paper plate and some tissue paper or construction paper.  I didn’t have any brown tissue paper, so that is construction paper but the yellow and orange are tissue paper.  Hailey started out making a pattern around her plate (this will be the mane).

Then she decided she just wanted to add a bunch of pieces.

You’ll need these pieces for the lion’s face- a yellow diamond for the head, 2 yellow circles for ears, an orange triangle for the nose, black rectangles for whiskers and wiggle eyes.

Hailey putting the face together.

Then she glued the face onto the plate.

The finished lion.

    This is great! I will definitely do this with my little one! Thanks for all of your wonderful ideas! I have been so inspired by all of these wonderful blogs that I decided to start one of my own! I plan on posting things for the students I work with (K-4) and activities I do at home with my daughter.
    Thanks again!
