Paper Plate Lion

This summer, we have gotten to go to several zoos and animal parks! As summer comes to an end, we decided to bring some of that animal fun home with a few jungle animal crafts! Today, we want to share an easy paper plate lion!

Materials Used

  • Paper Plate
  • Yellow Paint
  • Brown Construction Paper
  • Yellow Construction Paper
  • A Paint Brush
  • Googly Eyes
  • Glue
  • Scissors

I started by giving my toddler the paper plate to paint.

We let the paint dry overnight. Once it was dry, I helped my toddler cut strips from the brown construction paper. I cut ear like shapes from the yellow construction paper.

Once the paper was cut out, we glued it onto the back of the paper plate.

To finish this craft, we flipped it over and added googly eyes!

If you like this craft, please share it with a friend!
