Z is for Zebra Project
- Black, white, and blue construction paper
- One googly eye
- Straight edge
- Black marker
- Roller adhesive or a glue stick
Start by drawing a big letter Z onto your white construction paper using your pencil and straight edge. If you’re doing this with a big group of kids or drawing isn’t your thing, we have a whole bunch of printable letter Z’s you can use. Cut it out, add adhesive on the back, and glue your Z down near the top of your blue construction paper.
Next you’re going to cut a strip of black construction paper that’s roughly as wide as the lines in the letter Z. Then, cut a square that’s rounded on one side and a whole bunch of thin strips like shown. Glue the rounded off square to the top of the Z, as this becomes our zebra’s nose. Next you’re going to glue on the googly eye just behind the nose.
Go ahead and add glue on the back of the strips, and add them onto your Z however you’d like! Remember, zebra stripes are very different and random in nature! Just use your black marker to draw on a little zebra smile.
Draw on your zebra’s tail at the end of the Z. Then you can write “is for Zebra” underneath your awesome zebra creation!
