Hi my crafty friends! It’s Stacey ROARING by with another simple and kid friendly craft idea that I hope gets you crafting with your child today!!! Inspired by some simple small orange pom poms from Darice, today I present to YOU our paper plate pom pom lion craft idea!
So what are you waiting for?! Let’s “roar” together and make time for some creative fun this afternoon! Happy crafting my friends!!!
Pom Pom Kids Lion Craft Supplies:
- Small Paper Plate
- Darice 1″ Orange Pom Poms
- Yellow Craft Paint
- Darice Foam Paint Brush
- Yellow/Black Craft Felt
- Darice Kid’s Craft Scissors
- Darice Felties Felt Glue
- Black Marker
Step 1. First grab your paper plate, paint brush and yellow craft paint. Squirt a small amount of yellow paint in the center of the paper plate. Hand over the paint brush and have children paint the entire paper plate completely yellow.
Step 2. While children are working on the painting aspect, grab the yellow and black craft felt, along with your scissors. Go ahead and cut out TWO large half circle ears for the lion from the yellow craft felt, as well as a simple heart nose from the black craft felt.
Step 3. Once the painting step is done, go ahead and staple your yellow felt ears to the paper plate, as well as gluing the felt nose and wiggle eyes to the center of the plate. At this point in time, you should also use your black marker to draw on a mouth and some whiskers.
Step 4. Now it’s time to add a pom pom mane to the lion craft! Go ahead and put a thick layer of glue around the edge of the paper plate. Have children place their orange pom poms all along the edge to create a full mane.
So what do you think? Super cute, right? If you’re looking for another fun project to tackle with your kids today, check out our popsicle stick strawberry craft!
