LP: "Edible lion"

Animals -- I love this topic. It's so easy I don't have to stare at the ceiling for long when I do my lesson plan. This is one of the most-loved topics, too, as kids love to imitate the noises animals make. Mind you, they can snort better than horses or pigs.

Arts and crafts can sometimes be tiring and boring. Eating can never be boring (at least for me) so one day we decided to make an edible lion for our activity. Though most of them didn't eat their lions, they definitely enjoyed making them. It was messy with lots of shredded carrots ending up on the floor but it was a real winner nonetheless.

" Edible lion" - shredded carrots for mane, a slice of pineapple for head, raisins for eyes and mouth, a cherry for nose.
