L Is for Lion Craft

L Is for Lion ABC Craft

The king of the jungle is roaring his way into your ABC Craft lineup this week! But don’t worry, this lion is really just a big pussycat. His roar is much bigger than his bite!

Here’s What You’ll Need

  • 2 sheets of printer paper
  • Card stock (we used yellow, orange, and dark blue)
  • L Is for Lion Craft templates
  • 2 “googly” eyes
  • Glue stick
  • Pencil and marker
  • Scissors

Instructions for Assembling Your Letter L Craft

  1. Print the L Is for Lion Craft templates.
  2. Cut out the templates and trace the letter L and the lion pieces onto card stock.
  3. Cut out the letter L and the lion pieces.
  4. Glue the letter L and the lion’s head, feet, and tail onto a full sheet of card stock (we used dark blue, but you can use any color you like) to form a lion.
  5. Affix two googly eyes to the lion’s head.
  6. Use a black marker to draw the lion’s nose and mouth details.

Abby

says:

Love this idea!

This is puuuurrrrfect! Funny how mine tend to struggle with the sound of this letter, replacing it with the “w” sound.

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

Emily,
That is a common speech issue with younger children, although the /l/ sound is typically mastered at about 4 years of age. If your children are older than that, you may consider helping them with the sound. I found the book Teach Me How to Say it Right: Helping Your Child with Articulation Problems by Dorothy P. Dougherty to be helpful for my child that had difficulties pronouncing certain sounds.

Sara,
The ABC Animal Book makes a great keepsake! It’s the kind of thing that kids like to look at occasionally even into adulthood, remembering the fun of making it.
