We're Going on a Lion Hunt

In the jungle, the mighty jungle The lion sleeps tonight... we watched The Lion King for our family movie night last week, which has sparked a real interest in Lion's from Master 2 and Master 4. We have been reading this fabulous book about a teacher and her class going on a lion hunt...but can they find the hiding lion? This book is an hilarious twist on the classic We're Going on a Bear Hunt. From here we have done some craft, cooking and healthy lion sandwiches.



Pasta Craft - Paint a paper plate with orange paint and then add pasta spirals to form the lion's mane. This was a fun and simple little activity for Master 2.














I love getting creative and making the kids fun sandwiches to eat! Check out his lion sandwich using ham, grated carrot and raisins! So healthy too!

Going on a lion hunt.
I'm not afraid.
I'm going to catch me a BIG lion!
(Spread arms to demonstrate the word "big" as you say the word.)
But look!
What's that ahead?
(Raise your head to your forehead, as though you were looking far away.)
Uh-oh.
There's mud ahead!
Can't go over it.
Can't go under it.
Can't go around it.
Better go through it.
(Make sloshing sounds and move hands and feet as if wading through mud.)


Uh-oh.
There's a lake ahead.
Can't go over it.
Can't go under it.
Can't go around it.
Better swim through it.
(Make swimming motions.)


Uh-oh.
There's a gate ahead.
Can't go over it.
Can't go under it.
Can't go around it.
Better go through it.
Gesture as if you open a gate, walk through, and close it.)


Uh-oh.
There's tall grass ahead.
Can't go over it.
Can't go under it.
Can't go around it.
We'd better crawl through it.
(If room permits, children can crawl around.)


There's a cave ahead.
Can't go over it.
Can't go under it.
Can't go around it.
Guess we'll have to walk into it.
It's dark in here.
I see two shining lights.
feel something furry.
I feel a c-c-c-cold nose.
I feel s-s-s-sharp teeth.
It's a lion!!!
(Shiver and make terrified faces.)


Run out of the cave!
Crawl through the grass!
Open the gate!
Swim across the lake!
Wade through the mud!
Run into the house!
Close the door!
Run up the front stairs!
Crawl under your bed!
