You can make this lion busy book page with this super simple how to guide. I started this busy book series yesterday with my shapes busy book page. I will continue this series all week this week and into next week. If you follow the entire series, you can make an entire busy book! This is also a part of the kids activities version of Craft Lightning where we will have fun activities to keep kids busy all week. The best part? They all take 15 minutes or less to complete. Just scroll to the bottom of this post for today’s activity ideas.
Supplies needed to make your own lion busy book page:
Some links may be affiliate links.
- Stiff felt sheet (I used these large sheets cut in half)
- Felt scraps (I bought this bag of felt scraps to make all of my busy books)
- Lion pattern page (print by clicking here)
- Ribbon (two colors)
- Black paint pen
- Sewing machine
Cut pattern pieces from felt. Lay onto lion head and draw on mouth with black paint pen. It may take a few coats before it looks good. Allow to dry completely before continuing.
In the mean time cut several pieces of ribbon 4 inches long. I used about 13 of each color on my lion.
Sew the face pieces to the head first. Then sew around the entire head attaching it to the stiff felt sheet with the ribbon pieces in between as shown below.
Your lion busy book page is complete! This one is really great for infants (especially those that love tags!). Add this one to your busy book today!
