I remembered my niece once shared with us a naughty little joke.
She asked, “What animal is very hamsup (cheeky)?”
Me: The LEMUR (King Julian) in Madagascar!
Me: Then what?
Hazel: ZEBRA! Coz zebra will un-ZIP and show off its BRA!
LoL! Cheeky little girl she was…
Today, let’s not be cheeky and make a zebra as a teaching aid instead. This is great to be used when introducing ABCs to the little one. I was in one of the localkindy around when I saw this on their Art Board so here we are reproducing the art work 🙂
I prepared a Z template and get the kids to use it to draw the outline.
Cut out the Z
Paint stripes on the letter Z
Paint a strip of paper black, let dry and cut little strips as the mane.
Paste the mane onto the Z, add ears and eyes and the ZEBRA is done! 🙂
Let’s do some salt painting today. You’ll need lots of salt, glue and some food colouring. Bare in mind though that this artwork won’t last so be prepared to explain to your kid that he can’t keep this in his gallery 🙂
First, I let him spread glue all over black construction paper.
Place the construction paper in a shallow container and pour salt onto the glue.
Dip a brush into food colouring and slightly touch the tip of the brush on the salt.
Pay attention to the salt. It will suck absorb the food colouring and kids are usually fascinated by it!
Next I spread glue onto a black construction paper. I spelled out his name 🙂 He poured salt all over it 😀
It’s ‘magic’. Kids will be amazed I assure you 😀
Ethan and his masterpiece 🙂 Too bad it will get runny almost immediately though 🙁
