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.
Making this lion from empty drink carton was a fun activity for both of us. Kid enjoyed his time doing a craft activity with me. It was great for bonding. After making this lion craft, kid came up with different ideas to use empty drink cartons which is
Empty drink box
Used magazine papers
How to make the Lion Art Craft
Clean the empty drink carton.
Apply glue on it. Cover it with a magazine paper.
Allow to dry.
Then cover it with a yellow colour paper. Using scissors you can cut the paper to exact size of the empty drink carton.
Then cut a circle using yellow colour paper. Cut another circle with red colour paper (it should be bigger than the yellow circle)
Cut legs and tail.
Paste as necessary to create a lion.
Draw eyes, mouth, nose and whiskers to complete the lion art craft project. This is a perfect craft to do with a preschooler and they can do most parts of this.
Skills to improve: scissor skills, hand eye coordination, awareness of importance of recycle/reuse/repurpose.
It is easy to make this lion with repurposed materials.Lion art craft is ready!

Later we found that this lion craft has been chosen to display in the Community Art Gallery display board near the preschool.
