Step 3: Cut out the shapes with scissors.



Step 4: Take a paper clip and flatten it out, leaving just the end bent into a hook shape.


Step 5: Poke a hole in the center of the wheel and feed the paper clip from the backside, pulling all the way through until the hook catches the paper.




Step 6: Fold the tab on the lion back and slip it under the flat part of the paper clip on the front side of the wheel.


Step 7: Take a piece of tape and roll it so that it becomes double-sided.

Step 8: Stick the tape on tab of the lion, making sure the paper clip is secured inside.

Step 9: Fold the lion down against the wheel and press to stick together.


Step 10:  Now you can hold the end of the paper clip and wheel your lion around for some awesome carnival fun!
