Legend has it that if, on the first of March, the weather comes in like a lion (fierce and strong), it will go out like a lamb (mild). The opposite is also true. Featured at Mrs. Beggs Kindergarten, this March bulletin board display, designed by fellow kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Fox, creates a grand representation of this ancient tale - pulling in the 'color' of March {green, of course!} and providing a place to display fun student crafts!

Lion & Lamb Crafts

In like a lion...

  • Be sure to visit Mrs. Beggs Kindergarten page if you wish to reproduce the lion's on the board. She provides a close-up of the craft and written directions!
  • Try this felt and paper plate lion from Preschool Corner.
  • Consider recycling some old CDs to make this cute lion craft from Arts and Crafts for Kids.
  • Try this hand print construction paper lion craft we found at Just For Fun.
  • Visit Danielle's Place for a whole host of fantastic lion craft that make use of exciting elements - bowls, puzzle pieces, noodles, and more!

Out like a lamb...

  • Be sure to visit Mrs. Beggs Kindergarten page if you wish to reproduce the lion's on the board. She provides a close-up of the craft and written directions!
  • For a twist on the original craft, follow the directions at Mrs. Beggs Kindergarten page, substituting plain popped popcorn for the cotton balls.
  • Create a hand print lamb like these at Free Preschool Crafts.
  • Invite students to paint a card stock sheep cut out with this fluffy shaving cream paint we found at Toddler Craft, adding black felt or construction paper head/feet.

For fun {it probably wouldn't work for your bulletin board unless you chose to alternate sides}, check out this double sided hanging lion AND sheep craft from Busy Teachers Cafe and/or Kinderteacher.com!
