One of my very favorite things about homeschooling is the ability to turn everything into a learning experience! I love setting up a weekly theme for the kiddos to really dive deep into a subject. These lion themed snacks were perfect when my son was going through a “Lion King” phase.
When I plan a unit study, I like to think of books, movies, YouTube channels, snacks and art projects based around that topic. Then we spend the whole week just diving into the activities and learning all about what we’re studying.
What I love most about this easy lion themed snack is that I generally have all the ingredients in my fridge! That means, I can whip this up anytime, even when we’re not studying lions.
