Spring In Like a Lion & Out Like a Lamb Craft Project for Kids

March is "In like a lion, out like a lamb" craft

The old saying tells us that March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb.  We celebrated that idea and made this fun craft project to hang up all through the month.

What You Need to Make Your Lion and Lamb Craft:

  • Two paper plates
  • Marker/Crayons
  • Brown, Yellow, and White Construction Paper
  • Glue
  • Cotton Balls
  • Scissors
