Chinese Lion Dance Costume

You will need:

A large cardboard box
Paint
Coloured paper
Glue
Long piece of fabric

Instructions:

Cut eye holes from the box, and then paint the box in bright coloured paint.

When the paint is dry, cut out a mane, eyes, nose, mouth and other decorations from coloured paper. Glue these on to your lion’s head.

Finally staple the fabric to the back of the head to form a tail. Wear your costume to hold your own lion dance parade!
