Craft: Photo Board

Total Time Needed: 2-3 Hours

Here's an activity only for kids brave enough to face a hungry lion - and be photographed in a tuxedo! With an instant or digital camera, the resulting shots make for a great party favor.


  • 4- by 6-foot Sheet of Foam Core (available at larger office or art supply stores)
  • Pencil
  • Knife (Long enough to cut through foam core)
  • Acrylic Paint
  • Duct Tape
  • 2 Garden Stakes
  • Footstool (for short children)
  • Camera


1. To make a lion and lion tamer photo board, first sketch it out on the foam core in pencil.

2. Cut the mouth hole out of the foam core with your knife.

3. Pain the scene with acrylic paints.
