This is a project my partner teacher came up with while we were co-teaching Kindergarten. We hung them all in the hallway outside our classroom to display during the month of March. It goes along with the popular saying, "In like a lion & out like a lamb," in regards to March weather. I talked to M1 about the concept of this common weather phrase, she understood the basics & really just wanted to make a lion! I intended on painting her hand (both brown & black) & stamping it on the paper to create the bodies but she "really didn't want her hand painted mom!" So that's when the construction paper came into play. But painting would be a fun option if your child is felling up to it.
