How to Make

  1. Using the template draw and cut out the lion’s face from yellow card.
  2. Stick the lions face to the middle of the white card.
  3. Stick two jumbo wiggle eyes and draw a nose, mouth and whiskers using a black deco pen.
  4. Then, mix your watercolours so that they are watery.
  5. Dip your paintbrush in the watercolour paint and place the watercolour paint around the lion’s face. Work on one section of the lion’s mane at a time so that you have more control over the paint.
  6. Take your straw and blow the paint away from the lions face to create the mane. Repeat until you have a full lion’s mane.
