A special thank you goes out to Disney Home Entertainment for sending my family a copy of The Lion Guard – The Rise Of Scar DVD for review and inspiring this Valentine’s Day Lion Craft. Opinions expressed are those of my own.
Does your child have a love of all things Lion? Does he or she watch the Disney Junior series The Lion Guard?
If so, I have an easy Lion Craft for Valentine’s Day as well as FREE activity and coloring pages featuring character’s like Kion, Rafiki, and Rafiki’s new apprentice Makini from the newest DVD release, The Lion Guard – The Rise Of Scar DVD.
To make our Valentine’s Day Lion Craft you will need the following:
Red, Pink, Yellow, and Light Orange Construction Paper
2 Wiggle Eyes (Thank you Craft Project Ideas for the gift, these came in handy!)
To get started with the Valentine’s Day Lion Craft, you will first need to fold a piece of yellow construction paper twice.
Then take a black crayon and draw 2 lines – one short line that connects at the top fold to the side fold and another curved line that connects at the top fold to the side fold.
After drawn, cut along those lines so that the paper forms a heart shaped card when opened. This will be the face of the lion.
Next, fold an orange piece of paper in half and lay the yellow on top of it.
Draw a mane shape along the outside, cut that out, and paste with the glue stick to the yellow. When unfolded the yellow piece will open on top like a card.
Then, fold the red and pink construction paper in half and cut out a thin shaped heart for the mouth and small heart for the nose.
Finally, paste on the mouth, nose, and wiggle eyes as well as have your child draw on whiskers.
You will then have a Valentine’s Day Lion Craft that can be gifted as a card with cute messages written inside. We used quotes like “I hope your Valentine’s Day is “Purr”fect or “ROAR” ing you a happy Valentine’s Day.”
Be prepared for the Rise of Scar! With the arrival of the Dry Season, tensions run high, patience wears thin and thirsty tempers flare. To make matters worse, Janja’s hyenas, aided by Ushari the snake, discover a secret that could bring back the vengeful spirit of the legendary villain, Scar!

Have you seen any of The Lion Guard episodes on Disney Channel? Who is your favorite character on the show?
My kids and I enjoyed watching this DVD and we were excited to see the addition of new characters to the series. The Lion Guard has a great continuing story line of The Lion King, and not only incorporates great musical scores into episodes, but also shares life lessons that are great for young children.
