Today I am excited to get back to our letter of the week series. We made an adorable L is for Lion letter craft, played a fun Loud as a Lion game that my kids loved, read a lion story, and even sang a lion song. I have the free printables available to download so everything you need is ready to go.
If you are unfamiliar with our A-Z letter of the week series you should stop by and see all the fun ideas we have shared, complete with printables.
The long delay was because my computer memory filled up and I had to transfer my files to an external hard drive. Upon doing so I lost ALL of our A-Z files (technology isn’t always my friend). I was a bit discouraged with having to re-make printables, crafts, and things, but now I am recharged and ready to complete the rest of the alphabet. The crafts and activities are designed to be fun and simple and can be done in one day or across several days. It’s fun, so let’s continue on our way to Z!

L is for Lion Craft
Loud Like a Lion Activity
Age Group: Preschool/ Tot School
Tape or Glue
Music instruments (optional)
To prep the activity: cut out the two lines from the printable and tape or glue each one to a popsickle stick. Ask kids to point out which lion looks like they are being loud, and which lion looks like it is being quiet. Discuss times when we are supposed to be quiet (library, movie theater, church, doctors office…) and times when it’s okay to be loud (at a party, park, if yelling for help…)
To play the activity: Hold one of the lions up at a time and have the children either be loud or quiet according to which lion you are holding up. Kids can use their voices, stomp feet or clap hands, or play instruments. Each child can have a turn being the leader and holding up the lion faces to the group.
