Paper Bag Lion Puppet

 Create a lovable lion which will inspire you to roar!

Craft Project Directions:
To make this craft project you will need a paper bag, colored construction paper- yellow and orange, glue, scissors, and crayons or markers.

To begin, take your scissors and colored construction paper and cut out strips of paper about an inch or and inch and a half wide. The wider you make your strips, the larger and more bushy you lion's mane will be.

Trim the length of those strip so they will be the same size as the four edges of the bottom of your paper bag. Now fringe your strips by cutting into them making vertical slits along the entire length of the strip- be sure not to cut all the way through.

Next curl the individual pieces which you created by rolling the vertical strips around a pencil or pen and releasing. Now you are ready to assemble your lovable lion.

Take your paper bag and flip it over so the bottom of the bag is facing up. This will be the face of Lion. Glue on the strips you have created and curled using the picture as a guide.

Let the pieces dry and then decorate further with crayons and markers- adding a nose, whiskers, and eyes.

Enjoy Crafting!
