Lion craft for Kids

Looking for a lion craft for kids? This is a really easy arts and crafts project I did with my kid. He was asked to do a craft work by using recyclable materials for his preschool. His teacher gave us few themes and we chose the theme ‘jungle’ and decided to make this lion craft.

All About Me Book for Preschool

We made this All About Me book in early January this year as a Preschool project.We were just after a long holiday in Sri Lanka to spend time with kid’s grandparents.We started this year with back to school shopping in Malaysia.We ended 2017 with happy memories and kid was eagerly waiting to start his new preschool term as a kindergartner.

My kid’s preschool teacher asked to prepare an ‘All About Me book’ as part of their learning series. Always these DIY projects are challenging for me. Once we did a paper lantern decoration project for last year Lantern Festival.It was a good DIY project for us to bond.We also made a paper plate toucan when teacher asked to create a craft using paper plates.

As a mom I try to help my kid with ideas while allowing him to do most of his projects alone. Therefore I tried finding an idea for his All About Me book with things he can do alone.

At the beginning of this year, he was 4 years old and he just started writing without help. Therefore we used pages about him with his handwriting.As he cannot write much,I used simple questions about him which answers are easy to write.
