Painting this Lion with Footprints and Forks was such a fun activity!
Mind you… painting with a fork is not as easy as it seems…
Paper or Card – the bigger the better
Paint – Yellow or Orange – or both
Googly eyes (optional – you could always draw these on)
Little willing Feet
Mom or Dad – to help paint and stamp the feet!
How to paint your Lion?
We did this over 2 days, so the footprints could dry overnight. This is not necessary though, it might smudge the brown into the yellow (or orange) paint a little…
First we painted and stamped our feet!
When our footprints were dry, we sat down quietly and painted the Lion’s Mane with a fork!
You need to place the whole fork into the paint – and swipe it from the footprints out…
You can only swipe once and then the paint is finished – and you need to hold the fork at a slight angle so you paint with the prongs – and not the back of the fork…
Once the paint is dry you can finish you lion off by adding eyes – nose and a few freckles!
The forks make a great Lion’s Mane!
