Kids Craft: March Comes in Like a LION...Masks
This past weekend we started working on our master bath; it's one of the final steps in a home addition that has been three years in the making. I can't wait to show you the final results, just a few more projects to finish up. So, with the smell of pipe cement wafting through the air I decided the kids and I needed to make something to remind ourselves that spring is right around the corner.
One of the many sayings I remember is "March comes in like a lion, and out like a lamb." Well, with this craft we've got the lion part covered! This would make a great classroom project, I tried to use Art box supplies but if you need to speed things along a glue gun and utility knife will make some of the steps much easier and quicker.
School glue sticks
hot glue gun
Step One: Cut out half of the center circle of a paper plate. You can use scissors for this step, or a utility knife.
Step Two: Color the remaining half of the center circle of the plate orange and in the center color a triangle in black or brown.
Step Three: Cut orange and yellow construction paper in half lengthwise and then into strips, they should end up being about 4"x1". Cut the brown paper the same way but into 2"x1" strips. Curl them around a pencil.
Step Four: Create your mane by layering and glueing the construction paper curls around the paper plate.
Step Five: Attach the craft stick to the back for easy holding.
