Giraffe Craft Preschool
Use crayons, markers, or colored pencils to color the giraffe neck template. We liked the bold colors markers made. We also added some deptb by tracing just outside the black spots with brown and then coloring the rest of the neck a warm yellow. But you can make your giraffe any color – real or imaginary you like!
Now color the giraffe head (s) you like.
Carefully use scissors to cut out the giraffee necks and heads you’ve colored.
Giraffe Paper Craft
Now fold the necks like an accordian folding in and out, back and forth until the entire neck has been folded. See above example.
