Mom or Dad – to help paint and stamp the feet!

Footprint - Fork Lion

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!
