The final project of the week was to create the ‘Mountain lions’ mentioned in the ‘Nora, Nora, open
the door,’ song. Each student was given a piece of 12″ by 18″, yellow, construction paper, folded
in half. They were instructed to draw a large circle on one half, adding two triangles for the ears
on top. On the other half, students were guided through the drawing of the lion’s body using simple lines.
They then cut out the shapes they had drawn and pieced the lion’s head and body together. Details
were added using leaf stamps dipped in brown paint. The lion’s mane was created by cutting
a fringe out of brown strips of paper.
Phew!!!! We had one busy week in the art room 🙂
