Now I Know My ABCs ~ J is for Jaguar

It's time for some fun alphabet crafts!! We hope you enjoy these! If you are new, you can visit our ABC webpage to find links to any other letters we have done, letters (with books listed) coming up!

by Julie Guidone

Summary: Wonderful photos help tell the story of the jaguar as he roams the dark rain forest.

Mine looks a little panicked...but our boys love him!

What You'll Need:
  • Orange or yellow foam sheet/construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Pencil {to outline/trace letter} 
  • Black yarn
  • Marker/Pen
  • Googly eye
  • Glue
How to make the 'J' Jaguar:
  1. Trace and cut an uppercase 'J' out of the yellow/orange foam sheet or construction paper. I used a foam sheet that was about 4" x 5" in size.
  2. Using the excess foam, cut out small ears, four legs/feet and a face for your jaguar.
  3. Draw spots all over the letter J to give your jaguar some spots.
  4. Glue on the legs, ears and face. Add the eye too!
  5. Using the tip of your pen/pencil, poke a hole to thread the yarn through for a tail.
  6. Draw claws on your jaguars feet as well as a mouth and nose for his face.
  7. Don't forget to color in his ears!
