Why did we do these funny and durable alligators?  – because the whole KROKOTAK family is on a long summer trip (we are even on another continent) … with all the things that we had to take with us in the suitcases, the room for the toys was so scarce ….

This time, instead of a crocodile, we made an alligator, as it is more typical for America :)
Крокодил от лист А4

 You will need:

  • an A4 sheet of paper
  • glue, scissors, felt-tip pen
  • a strip of white paper (for the teeth).

Fold the paper making 8 equal bands. Cut them as shown on the picture above. At the end you should have 2 long, 2 thin, and 11 short bands.Крокодил от лист А4

The body of the alligator is made by 10 short bands.  Крокодил от лист А4

 These are the remaining parts for the rest of the alligator.

 The tail is made from a long band. Insert it and glue it at the end.

The mouth is made from the second long band.

The eyes are made by the last, eleventh, short band.

    Lovely craft which both boys and girls really enjoyed – thanks so much for sharing! Some of the children added a thread at the alligator’s nose because they found it cool to have a walk with an alligator ;) Love this website by the way!

    Great idea, my boys really enjoyed making one.

    It little bit to hard for my three year old, but perfect for the oldest of six.

    Thanks for sharing
