Materials Used

Step by Step Tutorial

Crocodile’s Body

Apply some glue vertically on the toilet paper roll and glue the green paper on the roll.

Step 1

Wrap the green paper around the roll, seal it with glue, and then cut off the excess paper.

Step 2

Press the remaining green paper inside the roll.

Step 3

The Mouth

Take the second green paper and fold it in half and draw a crocodile’s mouth as shown in the picture.

Step 4

Start drawing from the crease up.

Step 5

Cut out the crocodile’s mouth using scissors.

Step 6

Make one inward fold in the middle and two outer folds.

Step 7

The folds should look like this.

Step 8

The Jaw

Fold the white paper in half and trace the mouth using a black liner (the crease should be at the bottom). We are drawing the jaw now.

Step 9

Draw some teeth around this jaw shape.

Step 10

Cut out the jaw shape with the teeth using scissors (when you open the jaw, it should look like in the picture).

Outline the bottom jaw and the teeth with the black liner.

Step 11

Cut through the middle using scissors.

Step 12

Glue the teeth inside the mouth – the black marks should face upwards.

Step 13

The head should look like his when looking from above.

Step 14

Fold the teeth inwards.

Step 15

The Tongue

Trace the mouth on a red color paper to make the tongue, and cut out the tongue part.

Step 16

Now glue the tongue inside the mouth, onto the bottom of the jaw.

Step 17

Next, apply some glue on the edges of the toilet paper roll, attach the head on the top of the paper roll, and press it with your fingers until the glue dries.

Step 18

Your crocodile friend should look as in the picture.

Step 19

The Eyes

Draw two eyes on the white paper and cut them out using scissors.

Step 20

Glue the eyes on a green piece of paper. Make sure you leave space under the eyes.

Step 21

Cut around the eyes to form the head.

Step 22

Now fold the bottom part and apply some glue to it.

Step 23

Glue the head above the mouth.

Step 24

The Legs

Now use the green paper and fold it two times, so you have four pieces of paper stacked on top of each other.

Draw the crocodile’s leg on top of it.

Step 25

Cut out this shape. Now you should have four legs from the stacked green papers.

Step 26

Continue by folding the ends of the legs.

Step 27

Cover the nails in white using the white marker and outline them with the black liner.

Glue the legs on the body as shown in the picture – the upper legs facing upwards, the back legs facing downwards.

Step 28

Take a piece of green paper and make it the same width as the beginning of the crocodile’s mouth.

Step 29

The Nostrils

Draw two nostrils, and make sure you leave some space at the bottom part of the paper.

Step 30

Cut out the nostrils.

Step 31

Fold the bottom part of the paper and apply some glue.

Step 32

Glue the nostrils on top of the upper jaw.

Step 33

The Skin

Take the white marker and decorate the crocodile’s body with vertical dashes.

Step 34

Your toilet paper roll crocodile is all done!
