A Is for Alligator Craft

This ABC Crafts letter-of-the-week animal may have a mouthful of sharp teeth, but he’s still pretty cute. Your little one will love learning the letter A with our A Is for Alligator craft!

Here’s What You’ll Need

Instructions for Assembling Your Letter A Craft

  1. Print the A Is for Alligator Craft templates.
  2. Cut out the templates and trace the letter A and the alligator head and teeth onto card stock.
  3. Cut out the letter A and alligator pieces.
  4. Glue the letter A and alligator pieces onto a full sheet of card stock (we used purple, but you can use any color you like) to form a wide-mouthed alligator.
  5. Glue 2 googly eyes to the alligator’s head piece.

What is the letter u animal and I?

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

Katie,
The capital U animal is an umbrellabird. They are native to Central and South American and are pretty interesting! The capital I animal craft is an inchworm, also an interesting animal.

Thank you for making this available…I traced the letter from the template and I told him to paint and he loved every minute of the craft…he is so not in to colouring …thank you again

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

Nessa,
I agree with your son; coloring is overrated but painting is wonderful. You’re welcome for this, and I’m pleased to hear it was enjoyed so well. 😊

says:

My 3 year old loves doing these! We also cut out the little examples and feed them to the puppy cereal box we made from your free template. So now we feed it dog bones and animal letters :)

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

What a great idea, Kelsi! Thanks for sharing this additional fun way to review.

Debbie

says:

This is just what I was looking for to do with my 2 1/2 year old (Alex)! His 4 year old brother goes to preschool class, so Alex is becoming interested in letters and “homework” too. I will just glue down one side of the A, then use a brad paper fastener to make the mouth open and close. Hopefully that will work, and add some excitement for my little man. Thanks so much!

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

I love your idea of making the alligator’s mouth be able to open and close, Debbie!

Darla

says:

My almost three year old daughter is enjoying making these! They are great! Thank you for making them available.

This is the first successful alphabet craft for my not very cooperative 4-year-old! My son is not very interested in coloring and when I look into fun activities to do with him they are either too involved, which doesn’t keep his interest, or not fun enough. Instead, he spent the rest of the day showing off his alligator and was so proud of having something he put together himself (except the cutting). With homeschooling 3 older kids requiring so much of my time it was nice to have something cute and finish able to do with my youngest.

Yolanda,
You are welcome.

In the blog post announcing these ABC animal crafts you will a master supply list for all 26 letters. That way busy moms like you can gather everything at once and not have to worry about what is needed for each week’s craft.

Dianne

says:

I love the idea of these letter crafts. My soon to be 9 year old son loves letters and always has. I was thinking this would be a great fine motor skill craft that we can use to display in our family room for his birthday party’s decorations.

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

Dianne,
I think these ABC animal crafts would be great decorations!

Barbara

We did a craft like this last year with our co-op. My son’s is still on the refrigerator. I think it was his favorite craft last year because his name also starts with the letter A.
