Summary: Fun fold-out counting book from 1 to 10 for little ones.

What You'll Need:
  • Yellow foam sheet/construction paper
  • Brown yarn
  • Scissors
  • Pencil {to outline/trace letter} 
  • Marker/Pen
  • Googly eye
  • Glue
How to make the ‘L’ Lion:
  1. Trace and cut an uppercase 'L' out of the yellow foam sheet or construction paper. I used a foam sheet that was about 4" x 5" in size.
  2. Using the excess foam, cut out 4 legs for your lion, a head/face, and an ear.
  3. Cut brown yarn into 2" lengths for your lion's mane.
  4. Glue on the lion's face, ear, eye, and legs.
  5. Draw claws on your lion's feet if you would like and a face on your lion.
  6. Glue on the lion's mane using the brown yarn and also a longer piece for his tail.

We're just starting to do crafts focused on letters. I love this lion. I think I even have yellow foam sheets, though he may end up with a purple mane. I think I'm out of brown yarn!
