The Lion’s Lunch
What to do:
- On the cardboard, draw or paint a large picture of a lion. Cut a hole where the mouth is.
- Place a strip of masking tape where the children should stand.
- Place the lion upright a certain distance away (depending on the age and ability of the children).
- Have the children take turns feeding the lion by trying to throw the balls of crumpled paper through the lion’s mouth.
- Have the children count how many balls the lion “ate.”
- Use bean bags instead of crumpled paper.
- Have more than one strip of masking tape.
- The closest one can be for the three-year-olds; the farthest for the older children.
