This simple-to-make alligator is a cute craft that can also be used as a card. It is made from a single piece of green construction paper (or white paper that you decorate).
Estimated Time: 30 minutes
- A piece of green (or white) paper
- Optional – Crayons
Fold a piece of green paper the long way.
Draw an alligator shape on one side of the paper. Draw a long snout, two legs, and a long tail; the fold line will be the alligator’s back.
Cut about 6 small diagonal slits along the back of the alligator (along the fold line).
Unfold the paper. Fold over each of the slits you cut, forming little triangles.
Draw a big, toothy mouth and an eye on the alligator. Cut out the teeth if you like. Decorate the alligator!
If this is going to be a card, write your message on and in the alligator.
