How to Make the ‘Z” Zebra:

  1. Trace and cut an uppercase ‘Z’ out of the white foam sheet or construction paper. I used a foam sheet that was about 4" x 5" in size.
  2. Using the black foam, cut out a piece that can be used as the zebra’s mane. Use your scissors to ‘fringe’ the edge of the black foam, making it look more like hair.
  3. Use the excess white foam to cut out two ears for the zebra.
  4. Cut thin strips from the black foam to use as stripes for your zebra.
  5. Glue the mane onto your zebra. Add his ears.
  6. Add the black foam stripes to your zebra. Trim off any excess that hangs over the edge.
  7. Glue on your zebra’s eye and draw on a little nose and mouth.
