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.

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.

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.

I am so excited about this!!! I was in the midst of trying to find time to create my own for my twin preschoolers. This takes a load off my shoulders and I can devote that time to my planning for the older kids. This will be a precious keepsake.

Kathy

says:

Nice craft but I have one question. Why didn’t you place all the template pieces on the one sheet? It would fit if you rotate the eye section 90 deg. Seems like a bit of a waste of paper to do it the way you have it.

Crystal

says:

I was thinking the same and why not just print on the colored paper? Let’s teach resourcefulness and conservation along with fun letters.

Gerline

says:

All depends on If your printer will take cardstock… because mine sure isnt too fond of thick paper :(

Kathy,
I don’t know, but I will pass this question along. Thank you.
