OK! I promise this is the LAST Model Magic project! Lu and I just loved playing with the stuff! We usually work 2D so this was a nice change for Lu.
Model Magic or Clay
Start with a ball - Smoosh it
Fold top over - Pinch up ears
Make eyes with marker cap - look familiar? The owl inspired the lion! (sounds kind of wise...the owl inspired the lion.)
We used a crayon to make indents for a mouth
Carefully cut mane around bottom of face
The body - Roll a fat cylinder - Smoosh
Legs - Roll skinny cylinders - Smoosh
Tail - Roll long skinny cylinder - Smoosh one end - Cut slits into flat end of tail
Assemble - Oh - Lu's legs came out so fat we only used two of them. I had her make a slit on the bottom of each one.
Proud artist! She wanted to color him, add the googly eyes and make a home for him in the jungle. See first photo. Have fun crafting with your kids! Mama King
