Spaghetti Lion


  • Printout of the prepared material
  • Classic spaghetti or bows
  • Paints (yellow - orange) and brush (optional)
  • Hardboard (optional)
  • Glue


This month's challenge was to create something with pasta! 

A lion was the perfect idea :-) It is pretty easy besides gluing the bow tie pasta down. 

Start with inviting your child to color the pasta in orange and yellow. Let them dry for a few minutes. Print the already prepared material or the black and white head. Encourage them to paint the monochrome head in orange or yellow.

Help your toddler stick on the edges of hard cardboard or plain A4 paper the lion’s mane! 

You can also use spaghetti for a more impressive mane!
