Lion Pillow Craft for Kids
Cut out a yellow and an orange circle from fleece. The circles can be as large as you like, but you will want them to be at least as big as a standard plate.
Now cut stilts ever 1-2” all the way around the fleece leaving a circle in the middle that is uncut for the lion’s face. That is how big the lion face will be.
Color on a lion face using permanent sharpie markers. You can use a glue gun to add google eyes and a felt triangle nose if you prefer.
Now tie a yellow and an orange slit together. A single knot is sufficient. Now continue around the circle until all but 4 slits are tied together. Now add cotton balls or stuffing between the layers to stuff you lion pillow. Finish by tying the remaining few slits together.
Here is a close up view of the tied together slits making the lion’s mane.
This lion pillow craft is perfect for a L is for Lion preschool unit or a Daniel and the Lion’s Den Bible Craft.
If you are making a Bible craft you may want to write or attach the following verse on the back:
“He rescues and he saves; he performs signs and wonders in the heavens and on the earth. He has rescued Daniel from the power of the lions.” Daniel 6:27
