Art project- Make your own Snappy the Alligator!



  • Green paint

  • Construction paper

  • Paintbrush

  • Markers


  1. Paint your child foot (one at a time) with green paint

  2. Press on the paper to make the bottom of the mouth

  3. Then press the other to math the top of the mouth and nose

  4. Then press a foot a third time for the body

  5. To make the leg press their toes on the paper below the body.

  6. Once dry, use marker to all legs, tail eyes and teeth



Bring your kid’s love for alligators to life with an animal clothespin craft that is quick and easy to make.


  • Clothespin

  • Green paint

  • Paintbrush

  • Green pipe cleaner

  • Scissors

  • Green construction paper

  • Wiggle eyes

  • Craft glue

  • Red paint


  1. Paint your clothespin green everywhere except the bottom.

  2. While your clothespin dries, cut 2 pieces from your green pipe cleaner to form the legs and arms, then bend in a V shape and bend again at the ends for feet and hands.

  3. Glue the pipe cleaner legs and arms inside the clothespin — one towards the back and one inside where the clip will open.

  4. Next, cut a strip of construction paper the same width as your clothespin and accordion fold it down the length of the strip.

  5. Now, place 2 dabs of glue on top of the clothespin leaving enough for the alligator’s nose and affix the eyes. You’ll also need to run a line of glue down the alligator’s back and attach the accordion-folded construction paper to form bumps. You may need to lay it on its back until your glue is set.

  6. Finally, use your paintbrush to add a little red tongue just inside the clip’s opening to make your friendly alligator animal craft complete.

Math Activity:

Young learners start to understand that some objects are bigger than others. Alligators are always SUPER hungry and will eat the bigger object to be more full. You and your child can walk about the house, compare two objects and place the open mouth of the alligator head towards the bigger object!


  1. Cut out alligator head

  2. Walk around house

  3. Pick two objects to compare

  4. Ask your child “ Snappsy is hungry, which on is bigger?”

  5. Then have your child put the open mouth towards the bigger object.
