Last week my youngest son and I completed the last craft in our "crafting our way through the alphabet" adventure. We made an adorable Zebra mask (from a paper plate), and we did a little letter Z printing practice.
To make a zebra mask:
1) Cut two "eye holes" from a paper plate.
2) Cut a strip of black construction paper for the mane, and cut slits 3/4 of the way down the paper.
3) Cut a round circle from a piece of black construction paper. Glue mane and snout onto the paper plate.
4) Cut ears from a piece of cardstock. Color the inside of the ears pink.
5) Draw zebra stripes with a marker, and color them in with a black crayon.
6) Glue two pink buttons onto the snout.
7) Allow all the glue to dry, and then tape a popsicle stick onto the back.
After our craft, we did a little printing practice. If you want to practice printing the letter Z with your little one, right click on the picture below, save it to your computer, and print it.
That's it! We have finally completed a our 26 alphabet crafts. It was a really fun project for my little guy and myself. Have you made any of my alphabet crafts with your child?
