Lion Headband

One of our favorite animals to visit at the zoo is the lions! It is so fun to see these big, exotic cats as they walk around their habitat. And when we get to hear them roar- it’s so exciting! But . . . I don’t know that we would be excited if we heard them in the wild. Yikes!

We have all heard lions being referred to as the “king of the jungle.” But did you know that lions don’t live in jungles? They live in grasslands in Africa! Crazy, right?! 

I just knew that my next project needed to be lion-themed. So we made this adorable Lion Headband Craft! It was such a blast to make with my kids and gave them a fun accessory to wear after we were done. They loved using the headband to pretend they were lions, hunting in the Savanna. 

This craft is so easy to make with our simple instructions and printable template. This also means less mess, but just as much fun. All you have to do is print, color, and cut! So simple!

Benefits of Doing Crafts with kids

Not only is crafting a ton of fun, but it is so good for child development! Children get to build their fine motor skills when they color, trace, and cut. Crafting helps them use their creativity and imagination, which is essential for cognitive development. 

There are so many more benefits of crafting, including: 

  • Teaching relaxation and concentration techniques
  • Building self-confidence and self-esteem
  • Encourages creative and critical thinking skills
  • Improves social and emotional development
