This is a cross post from my TP Craft site. If you are interested in other crafty projects using toilet paper and paper towel rolls then you should check it out.
Lion Supply List: 1 toilet paper roll, paint, glue, scissors, google eyes, yellow paper, pipe cleaner

Begin by painting your toilet paper roll yellow. We mixed a little glitter glue in with our paint to make a sparkly lion. Allow your paint to dry.
Cut legs from the bottom of your toilet paper roll.

Cut a circle out of your piece of yellow paper and cut small slits all the way around the circle so that it looks like a sun. I let Cole do some of the cuts on this, but then he got board so I finished it for him.
Add google eyes and draw on a mouth.

Glue on your lion face on the toilet paper roll and add a pipe cleaner tail.

Book Suggestion: I love the story of the The Lion & the Mouse. It’s a classic fable with a wonderful lesson. In this version, the story has no words and the beautiful illustrations tell the story. I like using wordless books with my kids. It gives them a chance to really tell the story and predict what they think is going to happen as well as recant what they’ve seen.
