Lion's Mask


You can have fun acting out the story of Daniel in the Lions’ den.  Make a lion mask.
Let a friend be Daniel and you can be one of the lions.

Materials:
Reproducible
A 9- or 10-inch paper plate
Yarn
A paint stick
Felt
Craft glue
Duct tape
Crayon and marker

1.  Color the back of the plate a lion color.
2.  Have an adult cut holes for the eyes.
3.  Cut ears and a nose out of the felt.  Glue them onto the plate. 
4.  Cut the yarn in 2- to 3-inch pieces.  Glue them around the plate for the mane.
5.  Use the marker to draw the lion’s mouth.
6.  Tape the paint stick on the back of the plate.  Use the stick to hold the mask in front of your face. 



Purrrfect Paper Clip Holder





MATERIALS:
colored paper
clear tape
empty/clean tuna can
scissors
glue stick
black chenille stem
paper clips, five per child

PREPARATION:
Reproduce the Cat Head, Cat Body and Can Cover on to colored paper. [FOR SAFETY: If applicable, apply clear tape over the inside rim of the tuna can to cover any sharp edges.]


STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Cut out the Cat Head, Cat Body and Can Cover.
2.  Using your glue stick, apply glue to the Tab underneath the Cat Head, then place the Tab around the exterior rim of the tuna can (Cat Head should face the inside of the can) (see Illustration A).
3.  Apply glue to the blank side of your Can Cover, then place the Can Cover around the exterior rim of the tuna can (see Illustration B).



4.  Curl the black chenille stem around your finger (Cat’s Tail).  Tape one end of the Cat’s Tail down to the asterisk located on the Cat Body (see Illustration C). 



5.  Roll up several pieces of clear tape, sticky side outward, and place them where it says, “place tuna can here.” Press the tuna can down on to the tape to hold in place (see Illustration D).



6.  Place the five paper clips inside the Purrrfect Paper Clip Holder. 

CHARACTER BUILDER:
In the Bible story “Jesus Feeds the Five Thousand,” God assures us that He will always meet our needs. All He asks of us is to trust in Him. Pray and watch what God can do for you. Every time you reach for a paper clip from your Purrrfect Paper Clip Holder, read the Bible verse Psalm 23:1 located on the can cover, as a reminder to want for nothing – but to trust the Lord, your shepherd for everything!
