1 -Sleeping Letter Z
My Five glued down the pieces for the letter and added the nightcap (“What’s a nightcap?”). After adding the pom pom, he used a black marker to add the details. Simple and not a lot of creativity involved, but great for reinforcing the letter’s shape and sound! This is based on a letter Z craft I saw at Totally Tots.
2 – Zebra at the Zoo
This was my Three’s favorite letter Z craft, and after deciding not to make one my Five later changed his mind. The basic zoo cages craft (and zebra pattern) is from DLTK’s Crafts for Kids. We found a creative way to make the grass over at Mrs. Karen’s Preschool Ideas – Zoo Week.
3 – Zebra Paper & Painting Project
I love my Three’s zebra project — created with white paper, black paint, and googly eyes. I cut out the pieces, and he glued them down. And since I knew he wasn’t ready to paint the stripes on his own, I drew them in pencil, and he painted over them. Get a full tutorial for this zebra collage over at Busy Bee Kids’ Crafts.
4 – Zero Prints
Such a simple craft that anyone can do — just find something round that your child can dip into paint and make prints with — for the number zero, of course! We used milk jug caps. You could use other lids or a toilet or paper towel tube. You can have your child use all different sized lids to make it extra interesting.
5 – Z is for Zebra
This is a simple and adorable craft that kids like to make. It’s all over the Internet, so I’m not sure I could find the original source if I hunted for days!
6 – Zebra Handprint Art
Who doesn’t love a handprint craft? This one was tricky for my Three, but my Five loved adding the zebra detail to his white handprints.
