1. Alligator clothespin craft

01-alligator-craft

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

Supplies:
Clothespin
Green paint
Paintbrush
Green pipe cleaner
Scissors
Green construction paper
Wiggle eyes
Craft glue
Red paint

Directions:
Paint your clothespin green everywhere except the bottom.
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.
Glue the pipe cleaner legs and arms inside the clothespin — one towards the back and one inside where the clip will open.
Next, cut a strip of construction paper the same width as your clothespin and accordion fold it down the length of the strip.
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.
Finally, use your paintbrush to add a little red tongue just inside the clip’s opening to make your friendly alligator animal craft complete.
