We love easy, cute and simple kids’ crafts so were thrilled to recently receive a copy of Low-Mess Crafts for Kids: 72 Projects To Create Your Own Magical Worlds by one of our favorite creative bloggers, Debbie Chapman from One Little Project.

We’re already huge fans of One Little Project’s adorable and incredibly easy crafts! These are the little projects you can spend a quick hour with the kids on a bored afternoon or if your kids are older, set up an invitation to create with common craft items you probably already have at home like pipe cleaners, pom poms and paper tubes.

This is why, as my kids and I thumbed through Debbie’s charming book, we immediately zoomed in to this cute lion craft. As we were reading the materials list we were like “check, check, check.” We basically had all the items in our craft drawers and if you have little ones who love to craft, we bet you do too.

Read more below to get the material list to make this roar-some lion who won’t bite. He’s pretty self-explanatory but if you need additional help, scroll all the way down and watch our step-by -step video.

After you watch the video, do yourself and the kids a favor and immediately buy Low Mess Crafts For Kids. It will set you up for many afternoons of playful creativity, and be well worth the investment!
