Paper Plate Zebra Craft

Paper Plate Zebra Craft

I love making crafts from paper plates with my kiddos. Last spring for our preschool lesson on the letter Z, my daughter and I made a paper plate zebra together inspired by the same craft from Funky Crafts. For our version, my daughter did her own painting, which I think is pretty darn good for a three-year-old!



  1. Cut two triangles from the white paper.
  2. Paint two smaller black triangles in the centers of the white triangles.
  3. Paint an oval nose on the bottom of the paper plate.
  4. Paint stripes on the sides of the paper plate.
  5. Glue the triangles on top of the paper plate.
  6. Glue two wiggle eyes above the oval nose.
