As a busy mom, I'm always looking for little craft projects we can do on the weekends to keep my kids entertained. Recently, we made these simple lion crafts out of paper plates. Not only did my kids have a blast, but it kept them entertained and busy for close to 30 minutes. To make this simple lion craft using paper plates, you only need four\u00a0things -- washable paint, paint brushes, forks, and paper plates. I used an extra plate to add little dollops of paint that my kids could use to paint their lions. I also made one for them so they could copy mine.
