Create a fabulous Alligator card with this fun art and craft kids activity showcasing your child's talent. Delight your child by helping them create a unique card that is all their own. They are perfect for family birthday cards too!
What you need:
- a piece of green (or white) paper
- crayons (optional)
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 on the alligator.
Cut out the teeth.
Decorate the alligator.
I used small triangles of green felt, glued to the card to look like scales and then added some googly eyes.
This is a great card or as my kids did, use it to attack each other... playfully of course!
