- Stamp Pads in Various Colors
- Ultra Fine Sharpie Markers (also Watercolor Brush Makers will look nice)
- Sketch Pad or White Paper (White Cardstock is a nice option)
- Make a horizontal (sideways) orange thumbprint. This will be the giraffe’s body/belly.
- Above it, make a second thumbprint, slightly pointing down. This is the giraffe’s head.
- Connect the two with two long lines to form a neck with an orange sharpie marker.
- Add four long orange rectangle legs.
- Make a simple line for the tail at the end of the body.
- On top of the head, make two pointy ears.
- On either side of the ears, make the giraffe’s ossicones. These are the horns on top of the giraffe’s head.
- Add a little hair down the giraffe’s neck and on top of the head.
- Color in a bit of hair on the end of the giraffe’s tail.
- Make a smiling face for your giraffe!
- Cover your giraffe in brown spots.

- Make a vertical (up and down) thumbprint above, to the side, slightly off the body. This is the monkey’s head.
- Make a third thumbprint, horizontally, over the monkey’s head, connecting the body and head together. This completes the monkey’s face.
- Using a brown Sharpie, add two round ears on top of the head. Also draw a long curly tail at the end of the body and four legs.
