L is for lion in preschool

The children are exploring the letter L this week and today, this class made lions!

The children started out with a construction paper circle then added a construction paper mouth, nose, and two googly eyeballs…

Once they had their facial features added, the children brushed the edge of the paper circle with a thick layer of glue…

Next, the children added colorful pasta to the glue to create a colorful lion’s mane:) The colorful pasta was left over from another project we had done earlier this year…

Each child chose the direction he or she wanted to glue on the pasta. The lion below is a sad lion :(

The children really took their time creating the lions and did a terrific job managing the glue. Once the lions were done, they had to be picked up carefully and placed on the rack to dry so the pasta would not fall off…

The class next door made lions too, but they took a little different approach. I will show you their lions tomorrow!

Thank you to Rhyme Time for this fun idea!
