Make a quick & easy L is for Llama Zoo Craft with your little kids! If you’re looking for letter crafts or even planning a preschool zoo theme, then this post is for you!
We’ve had quite the adventure here lately. I’ll share more about that later, though. For now let’s talk about L is for Llama and our llama zoo craft.
Llama begins with the letter L. Llamas can be used as pack animals to help people carry their belongings on trails. Their wool is used to make ropes, rugs, and fabrics.

If you’ve been around for a while, then you already know that we’re using Mother Goose Time for preschool homeschool and it’s been such a huge blessing to us.
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
- Wiggle Eye
- Crayons or Markers
Here’s how to do it
- How might a llama’s wool feel?
- 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.
- Add a wiggle eye then cut yarn into pieces and glue on “wool.”
- Glue the llama onto the paper and decorate as desired.
- Invite children to play “Lost Llamas.”
- Hide llamas around the room, then search for them.
- Did the child hold the scissors and cut the yarn and paper?
- Did he appear to have consistent fine motor control?
We started with a letter L.
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.
Of course we can’t forget about our llama’s wool.
We used short pieces of natural yarn and a glue stick.
After that, the little guy created a background.
He added both clouds and grass.
So much detail. Don’t you think? I for sure love it and so does he!
