Z is for Zebra – Paper Plate Alphabet Craft

z is for zebra


  • Print out the zebra template from Alex Toys.
  • Cut out the pieces and glue it onto the paper plate.
  • Remember to encourage creativity. Your child’s zebra doesn’t need to be perfect or look exactly like the picture. It is about the experience. 
  • Write the letter Z on the Zebra. In this picture we wrote a lowercase and capital letter Z. If this is your first time crafting through the alphabet, I would recommend just writing a capital Z for your child. You can also write it on the back of the paper plate so that it doesn’t distract from the animal and the animal doesn’t distract from the letter. 


Read a book about zebras.
