This was definitely a quick and easy letter craft for preschoolers. And of course both the little guy and I had a blast with it. 

L is for Llama Zoo Craft

What you’ll need

  • Letter L
  • Yarn
  • Wiggle Eye
  • Paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Crayons or Markers

Here’s how to do it

Discuss

  • How might a llama’s wool feel?

Make 

  • Invite children to use the letter L and make a llama. 
  • Encourage them to cut ears and legs from the paper then attach to the L.

  • Glue the llama onto the paper and decorate as desired. 

Play

  • Invite children to play “Lost Llamas.”

Observe

  • Did the child hold the scissors and cut the yarn and paper? 
  • Did he appear to have consistent fine motor control?

A bit of glue and the little guy attached the letter L to his paper.

We used our scraps to cut out a head and legs for the llama and added a wiggle eye.

Each of the four legs were glued to the llama as well.

And every llama needs a nose, ears, and a mouth too.
