Step by Step Instructions
This is a favorite craft because kids don’t really have to do a lot to complete it. If your child is having a rough day or you just want to keep it simple for the day, this craft is just right. As you can see, it’s not only adorable but can be educational when paired with the right book or educational video.
You will need to print out the template. Printing this out will help this activity go so smoothly! You may want to print out one or two extra copies, just in case.
Lay the coloring template out flat, so that your child or student can color as they wish. If it’s crinkled or not straight, it can be hard to color.
This is where you allow your child to go to town with coloring! They get to have fun choosing which colors to color the crocodile, duck, and the surrounding setting. You can talk to your child about the proper colors or you can let them pick which colors they’d like to use.
You are then going to fold the paper back along the top of the mouth of the alligator. Once this is folded back, you can move onto the next step.
You will then bring that fold forward and line it up with the bottom part of the mouth. This is to give the illusion that the alligator has a HUGE mouth and can swallow very large things. Let your child have fun figuring out how the mouth works.
There is no doubt that your children or students will enjoy the final result of this fun craft. Get creative and do add ones if you’d like. Add a little glitter or paint with water color paint. The options are endless!
