EASY Lion Craft Mask Using A Paper Plate

Lion Craft Mask for kids

Picture my daughter running around the house yelling “RAWR!!” as she holds this lion craft mask in front of her face. That’s what happened for at least an hour this afternoon. I like to imagine what’s going on inside that little brain of hers when she plays. I wonder if she pictures herself as a ferocious lion running in the Serengeti. I hope so! The imagination of a child is so incredible and she’s always reminding me to slow down and enjoy the little moments.
