How To Make Alligator Paper Craft
Time needed: 20 minutes
- Print the template and cut it out.
Trace the body template and triangles on light green paper; scales and legs on dark green paper; belly on yellow paper; eyes on white paper and blush on pink craft paper. Cut the pieces out.
- Paste the scales
Take the scale cutout and apply glue along the plain side (not the scaled side) and paste the glued side of the scale along the curved backside of the alligator’s body.
- Make eyes
Use a black sharpie to fill the eye base cutouts to make the eyes of the alligator craft. Paste them on the alligator’s eye sockets.
- Draw mouth and nose
Next, draw the mouth and the nose of the paper craft alligator using a thin tip pen. We use a 0.5 black gel pen.
- Make alligator’s teeth
Cut out small triangles from white construction paper and glue them on the mouth to make the teeth of your alligator craft. Also, paste the blush below the eyes to complete the face of your reptile paper craft.
- Paste the belly
Paste the belly cutout along the bottom part of the alligator’s body.
- Glue the legs
Using glue, paste the leg cutouts along the bottom side of the alligator’s body, next to the belly.
- Trace the body and belly of the alligator craft.
Use a matching sharpie to draw an outline of the body and make vertical lines on the belly to give definition to your alligator craft.
