Paper Bag Creative Challenge: Hungry Lion
Today we joined the fun of TinkerLab's Creative Challenge: Create something with a paper bag. We made paper bag lions with big open mouths that can be fed. I love art projects that you can play with when they are done!
This was a really easy project. First we painted paper plates with yellow and orange paint:
We looked at some photographs of lions, and practiced marching around the room and roaring. Then it was feeding time.. What do lions eat?
"The lordly lion longs to sup
On living prey, and chew it up.
Try not to fall within his sight,
Lest he dispatch you, bite by bite." -Jack Prelutsky (Carnival of the Animals)
I realize this poem is a bit dark for 2-year-olds, but L loves to recite it.
Our lions especially enjoy eating plastic monkeys... with a spoon!
