You can also add some educational books, which will help you with your studies about giraffes.

3. Counting Giraffe Spots

Are you teaching your children to count? Why not let them count giraffe spots?

Use our largest giraffe outlines for this project.

Write a number at the button and either let them draw the matching spots on the giraffe.

Otherwise, you could also paint spots on your giraffe in advance. Then show your children flash cards with numbers and let them count the right amount of spots.

If you like to do this giraffe activity over and over again, consider laminating your giraffe outlines.

That way you can use them over and over again.

Laminators are not expensive and you can use them for all kinds of study and craft projects.

4. Giraffe Storytime

Do your children enjoy storytime at the library?

Why not make your own at home? Choose one of the adorable giraffe books above and read the story to them after visiting the zoo.

Add an easy craft at the end and let them tell you all about their observations at the zoo.

5. Giraffe Coloring Pages

The easiest way of using our templates is as giraffe coloring pages. Take our large giraffe outline printable or one of our giraffe coloring sheets and color away.

You can even easily adjust the difficulty level for older children. Simply give them a smaller giraffe outline or let them use a different painting technique that challenges them.

We for example love Salt Painting. Did you try yet? It is really fun and will give your giraffe a nice 3D look to it!

Take a look at the link above to find the full tutorial!

Another great way is using the Bubble Wrap Technique, Painting with Pom Poms, or Straw Blow Art.

6. DIY Giraffe Stencils

If you are tired of regular coloring projects, use our giraffe printouts and turn them into easy giraffe stencils.

For this project, I recommend using the smaller or medium-sized giraffe outlines to repurpose them into giraffe stencils.

Our most loved painting technique for stencils is using an old toothbrush. With the help of watercolors, you can create beautiful giraffe artwork.

You can find the full instructions and complete Toothbrush Technique Guide here.
