In Like a Lion, Out Like a Lamb: Embracing March Projects

lion and lamb march projects to make

As the cold grip of winter begins to loosen, March ushers in a period of changing weather patterns, capturing the essence of the age-old adage, “In like a lion, out like a lamb.” This poetic expression likely began as a reference to astronomy, with the positions of the constellations Leo the lion and Aries the ram/lamb in the night sky. Today it symbolizes the dynamic shift from the harshness of winter to the gentleness of spring. For us it presents the perfect opportunity to focus on lion and lamb March projects! Check out these fun ideas that feature lions or lambs (or both)! We hope one of them inspires you to create with Fairfield World at the heart of your project!
