Children use their creativity to fashion ferocious lions out of clay, in preparation for the lesson about Daniel and the Lion's Den.
Approximately 10 minutes
Before class, obtain plenty of modeling clay or Play Dough for the size of your class. Use medium card stock to print enought lion's mane for each child. You may also want to have some extras in case of damage. Cut out each mane before class.
WHAT YOU WILL DO:
As the children arrive, explain to them that they are to create a lion from the clay or play dough. Give each child a cutout mane to place over the head of their lion. Let the children be creative, and explain to them how lions are going to be an important part of today's lesson.
