Lion’s Mane-Art Accent

The lion’s mane art accent went along with our persuasive speech about lions.

The campers wrote on lined paper with a border.  Here’s a printout of the lined paper I use for Grades 2-7  and Grades K-2.  Here’s a printout of a border with no lines to use with very early writers.

Once the campers completed their speech, they used a yellow marker to color the border.  You can fill in the top as well or leave it blank to write the title with marker or ABC stickers*.

Next, they used a q-tip and brown acrylic paint* to make lines for the lion’s mane.


Here’s a sample to print and hang.

The paint causes the paper to curl a bit so we always put our dried finished work in plastic page protectors*.
