Lion Paper Craft For Kids With Printable TemplatePin

Paper crafts make a great rainy day activity, and we usually have the supplies on hand, so we can craft anytime we want! This project is no exception. It only requires basic supplies like paper, glue, markers, and scissors to create something fantastic. 


This paper project is perfect for kids of all ages. Younger kids will be proud of their work and the included template makes things easy to follow. Tweens and teens might want to add a little more detail to their lion, or let their imaginations play a part in the finished product, which is great. No matter what age , it is safe to say that they will have fun with this project!

Paper crafts are a timeless option for kids. They encourage dramatic play, and they are perfect for on the go play. You can take them anywhere, and if they are left behind? No worries! You can make another anytime. Just print a few extra templates to have on hand, or better yet, pin this idea for later, just in case you want to revisit it.

This lion craft will pair well with any of my Disney Princess paper doll crafts. Pair it with my paper squirrel craft for an instant animal play session.
