Daniel and the Lions Bible Craft

This unique handprint craft is based on the story of Daniel in the lions’ den. It will help children remember the miracle God performed in saving Daniel from the lions and encourage kids to trust Him in all circumstances.

Bible Text: Daniel 6

Note: This craft is also available as a downloadable PDF.

Supplies List:

  • Construction paper
  • Orange and yellow paint
  • Craft eyes
  • Permanent marker
  • Baby wipes for cleanup


Step 1. Give each child a piece of construction paper and assist children with painting the palm of one hand orange and yellow. Try to avoid mixing the colors so portions of the hand are just yellow and other portions are just orange. Guide learners in making careful handprints in a circle on the paper (see image).


Step 2. When the paper is dry enough (a hair dryer can assist with this), guide kids in drawing a lion’s face in the middle of the handprint circle and gluing on craft eyes (see image).
