hand print lion craft
Fluffy hand print lion craft
How adorable is this fluffy hand print lion craft? We actually came up with this cute little craft whilst making our fluffy hand print sheep. Looking at the wreath we made whilst making the sheep i thought, this would make a fab lion! I love hand print crafts, once my son is fed up with them i like to keep them stashed away as keepsakes to look back on when he’s older and spending time crafting with mummy isn’t cool anymore. Not only are these lions really simple to make, they only require basic resources too. So why not give this cute lion craft a go!
You will need
Coloured paper/card (we used light orange, dark orange, light brown and yellow)
First you’ll need to make your hand print template by drawing around little one’s hand and then cutting out the hand print . We normally make a template to draw around rather than draw around my little guys hand over and over simply because he says its too tickly!
Use your hand print template to draw around and cut out more hand prints. You will need 7-10 depending in how big the hand prints are and how the fingers are positioned. We eventually used 9 hand prints.
Glue your hand prints down at the palms in a round wreath shape to make the lion’s mane.
Cut out the shape of your lion’s face. This is simply an oval shape with two semi circle ears at the top. Glue it down in the centre of your hand print mane.
Glue on two cute googly eyes and then use your black marker to draw on your lion’s ears, nose, mouth and whisker spots. Your super cute lion is finished! isn’t he Roarsome!?
