Crafts: Lions

This post contains affiliate links. For more information please see my Terms of Use and Disclosure Policy page. Thank you.

Learning about animals can be so much fun for young children. One of the ways for them to remember what they have learned is to create a craft. So, in addition to reading books about lions, watching videos of them or seeing them in person, your children can make their own lion.

Let's Learn about Lions 

  • Male lions can grow to be 9 feet long from nose to tail and can weigh over 550 pounds 
  • Male lions have a mane
  • Female lions are called lionesses
  • Most lions live on the savannas of Africa (a small number live in Asia) 
  • Lions live in groups called prides 



1. Gather all your materials. 

2. Cut out the pieces you need – the mane, eyes, ears, nose, and mouth. 

3. Glue the mane onto the black construction paper. 

4. Color the face of your lion (the coffee filter). 

5. Glue on the eyes, nose, and mouth. 

6. Glue the face onto the black construction paper and then glue on the ears. 

Fun Books to Read 

Looking for more animal-themed crafts? 

Our children have made several crafts while studying animals. We have put together the life cycle of a butterfly, designed giraffes, and made dog paper bag puppets
