What to do
Step One First have your child color or paint two paper plates brown.
Step Two Then she should glue bunched-up strands of yarn to the rim of the plate. This will be the lion's mane.
Step Three Next have her cut out eyes, a nose, and a mouth from the construction paper.
Step Four Have her glue in the eyes, nose, and mouth.
Step Five Help her align the face of the lion on top of the other colored plate so that they overlap.
Step Six Glue the face in place -- now the lion has a body!
Step Seven Draw and cut out a tail and legs and glue them to the rest of the body.
