Valentine Lion Jug Craft

Instead of a Valentine’s Day box to hold Valentine’s, my daughter was asked to make a Valentine jug for their class party.  I’m pretty sure I got more excited about this than her and after talking it over we decided to make a lion out of her milk jug.  Today I am going to show you my version, although I’m sure her kid version will look better than mine! 🙂 Here’s what you will need: Lion Patterns, get those here. Scissors Glue Stick Hot Glue Gun Hot Glue Stick Construction Paper (Yellow, Orange, Pink, Red, & White) Milk or Water Jug Yellow Paint Paintbrush Optional: Large Wiggly Eyes (you could use these instead of the printed ones to add some dimension) Cereal Box (You could also do the lion on a cereal box if you prefer that over the milk jug) Here’s what I did: The first thing I did was cleaned out the milk jug and then cut a hole at the top large enough to fit her Valentines in.  I made sure to keep the entire handle intact so she could still use that to hold the jug. I then painted the jug yellow, with 2 coats of paint. From there I took the patterns I created, cut them out and glued them together (the patterns come with directions on how to assemble those).  I used a black marker to add a smile and whiskers.  I finished off the craft by hot gluing the assembled patterns on to the milk jug.  Hot glue is important here, as I don’t think your typical Elmer’s glue will work. You can get the patterns to make this craft in my TpT store here: Valentine Lion Craft Take a look at the video for a closer look at how to make this craft!
