DIY Paper Lion Mask for National Geo Kids



I was recently contacted by National Geographic Kids to create a fun DIY craft for kids in the theme of Trick-or-Treat for Big Cats. I love how they focus on big cats during the month of October and I was more than happy to tie it all in to Halloween. And over here, well we can’t get enough of lions, tigers, cheetahs, you name it!
If you need a simple and quick costume solution for this haunted weekend, or just a fun craft for imaginative play with the littless, this paper lion mask is your ticket!
For DIY instructions and a template, just head on over to National Geo Kids and click on the “lion mask (PDF)” link on the right hand side. From there you will be able to download a pdf with all the information you need.

Happy romping and roaring!

    Hello! I love this project, and I’d really like to do it with my students. I clicked on the link to the pdf but I couldn’t find it. Do you still have it available?

    How large is the template? I’m planning to buy orange posterboard on which to make these. Any tricks on how to scale it to the right size?
