Today is the Day! The Lion King has been released from the vault and is now available as part of The Signature Walt Disney Collection. This Blu-Ray DVD Digital HD version is a big deal because only four other Disney films are in this group. No doubt, The Lion King is a classic, timeless story of friendship, family, redemption, and self-love.
To celebrate, I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite The Lion King inspired crafts – and I’m giving away a copy of the Blu-Ray DVD! See entry details below!
In the meantime, check out this featurette that shows how The Circle of Life came to be. When the film first came out, DeAngelo was only four. Right as the first scene lit up the theater screen, my little boy scooted to the edge of his seat and watched with so much intensity, both Patrick and I chuckled. We hadn’t ever seen him sit still for so long.
After that, he had to have anything and everything Lion King. Sheets, clothes, shoes, toys. I didn’t mind because the movie deserved the attention. The whole message of letting go of your past, putting the safety of your family before your personal fears, making new friends.
And appreciating and respecting our elders.
The DVD comes packed with goodies including never-before-seen recording sessions from the actors, archival footage that shows the origins of the five iconic scenes, an in-depth look at what made Scar so…sooo…hateable! And then there are also sing-alongs for Circle of Life, I Just Can’t Wait to Be King, Be Prepared, Hakuna Matata, and Can You Feel the Love Tonight.
The set comes with codes so you can watch The Lion King on your TV, smartphone, desktop computer or tablet.
Okay, how about some crafts? You can make these while you watch, or after. Maybe have a viewing and craft party!
Use glittered animal print card stock as a backdrop to your favorite wired word. I used needle nose pliers to shape the letters.
A little felt and faux fur – a bit of crafty cutting, and you have this awesome Rafiki mask!
What fridge doesn’t need one of these? I think it brings good luck!

Hands down, my favorite. I think I may have to do a Coco-inspired project like this!
Another great idea for kids of any age!

These supplies are practically already in our houses, right? If not, you can find them at the dollar store so you can whip one of these up for playtime with the kids!

If you want something a little more subdued, just paint your nails…with a FINE tip pen or liner brush. THe detail here is crazy good!
