Summer is coming and this means my kids will be excited to visit the zoo and all the animals they do not commonly see at home!

One animal that always excites them is the black and white zebra! They love their stripes and watching them move in the zoo.

Previously we have made lots of other zoo animals including my tiger craft and my lion cardboard tube craft

We have also done some zoo coloring pages to get us even more excited (if that’s possible) for a trip to the zoo.

Fortunately this cardboard tube zebra craft is very easy to make using my easy step by step craft instructions provided below:-

Why not make a family of these zebras for even more fun! You can add different features onto each one. Change their facial expressions or add a bowtie around their neck! Ask your kids to be creative.

You can combine these with some of my other animal toilet paper roll crafts also. They can be used as puppets or even toys! Make your own pretend zoo. Ask your children what other animals they may find at the zoo and I’m pretty sure you will find a craft tutorial here on Easy Crafts for Kids to help create them.
