Supplies Needed To Make a Paper Roll Lion

Colored cardstock – we used yellow and orange

 Black Marker

– Googly Eyes

– Small Black Pom Pom, 2 Medium Orange Pom Poms

– Paper Roll

 Glue – Regular glue or a glue stick. I like to use a glue stick for this project since it’s less messy. Use a hot glue gun (adults to help) or a glue adhesive dot for the pom poms and googly eyes.
