Activity (Series A2 - Lesson 5): Lion Head

Sunday Schoolhouse Series Activity - Unit A2
Lesson 5: Daniel in the Lion's Den (Daniel 6:1 - 28)

As part of this lesson the children will make lion heads:
For this project you will need a paper plate for each child, orange/yellow tissue paper, small pieces of pink tissue paper, six brown or black pipe cleaners per child, masking tape, three buttons per child and markers. The paper plates will be the head of the lion. Glue on the buttons as eyes and a nose. From the bottom of the nose draw two opposing semi-circles to form the jowls. Glue a small piece of pink tissue paper below the nose where the jowls start to make a tongue. Poke the six brown pipe cleaners, three on each side of the lions face, through the plate far enough to tape the ends down on the back of the paper plate. The pipe cleaners may need to be bent somewhat so they do not stick straight out.

Then take the orange/yellow tissue paper and glue small pieces around the face to make the lion's mane. The older children make like to glue their tissue paper as tufts to make a 3D mane (shown left).  It may be easier for young children to simply glue tissue pieces  down flat. Option: lion head can be made into wall hanging by taping yarn in a loop on the back of the lion head.
