I use a good pair of scissors to cut the outline of the animal parts that I have sketched and drawn earlier.

3.  Paint the lion heads and animal body parts.

The toiler paper rolls will serve as the body of the lions.  The two long ones are for the lion and the lioness while the short one is for the lion cub.  

Before painting, I placed the white papers or old newspapers down on the table and then I put on my vinyl gloves for easy and mess-free clean-up afterwards. 

I used these acrylic paint colors for the following:
  • For the Lion - yellow paint for the body and brown paint for the lion's mane
  • For the lioness - yellow paint for the body, head, and pair of ears
  • For the baby lion cub - yellow paint for the small body and head

4.  Attach lion head to the body using tacky glue.

I used tacky glue to attach each animal head to the right body made out of toilet paper rolls.  Then, I used the clothespins to secure the glued animal parts in place.

After the glued lion head and body is all set and completely dry, I started attaching the pair of googly eyes on each lion.
