Clay Lion Statue

Use your imagination and bring a lump of clay to life! Create a ferocious lion or even something totally different! The possibilities are endless!

This activity is perfect to use in conjunction with the book 'The Stone Lion' written by Margaret Wild, illustrated by Ritva Voutila and published by Hardie Grant Children's Publishing.

  • Step 1Think about what you would like your clay sculpture to look like. Look to our design for inspiration or come up with your own.
  • Step 2Start moulding clay in your hands to soften it.
  • Step 3Push, prod and mould the clay until you are happy with your design. You may like to use clay tools to accentuate your creation.
  • Step 4Set aside and allow to dry for 24-48 hours.
  • We attached 3 wooden blocks together with glue to create a base for our design.
