Zippedy-doo-dah–the letter Z rounds out our
ABC Letter Craft series! And nothing will put a zip in your preschooler’s step like our zany little zebra, ready to zigzag his way into your child’s heart. But there’s about a zillion stripes to put on, so you may need to catch some Zs when you’re done! Here’s What You’ll Need
Instructions for Assembling Your Letter Z Craft
Z Is for Zebra Craft templates. Cut out the templates and trace the letter Z and the zebra body parts onto card stock.
Cut out the letter Z and the zebra body parts.
Hand cut 15-20 white “squiggles.”
Attach the letter Z to a full sheet of card stock (we used purple, but you can use any color you like).
Cut small slits along the upper edge of the zebra’s mane (both white and black pieces).
Glue the white mane piece to the black mane piece with the bottom edges even.
Tuck the mane piece under the upper edge of the letter Z and glue in place.
Glue the squiggles to the letter Z to form the zebra’s stripes.
Glue the nose and ears to the top end of the letter Z. Glue the nostril to the nose.
Affix one googly eye just beneath the zebra’s ears.
