Crafts are back (somewhat)… yay! I’ve really missed doing these things with M, we just did SO much when he was younger. I had something artsy or crafty planned every day after naptime. Hm. Come to think of it, I miss naptime too…
We started with a paper towel tube, a toilet paper tube, some zig-zag scissors, green paint, googley eyes, glue, and 4 feet outlined on the back of a cereal box:
Cut a slit down the side of the t.p. tube, going about halfway down. Then wrap it around to form a point at the end and tape:
Put the long tube inside the end of the short tube and tape together:
I drew a triangle on each side of the other end of the long tube:And then helped M cut along the lines with the zig-zag scissors. Apparently there is no after picture of this. The zig zags make it look like crocodile teeth.
Paint it all green:
Cut out the feet, paint them green too. Then glue on the googley eyes and let it dry for the rest of the day:(That’s an old flexible plastic cutting board that we use for messy projects.)
Then glue on the feet:
Look, a crocodile! Paint the inside of his mouth red and the tiny little teeth white IF you feel up to it. If not, leave it like ours. ;)
We actually read a book about a crocodile around the same time we did this craft – Lyle, Lyle Crocodile, by Bernard Waber.So, I think this means I can link up to the awesome stART carnival (story + art = stART) at Michelle’s wonderful blog! Yippee!
Have a beautiful day! :)
