Let’s Make The Crocodile Craft

Begin by painting your clothespins green. Set aside and allow your clothespins to dry completely.

Bend your green pipe cleaner in a zigzag pattern. Cut your pipe cleaner to fit the top of your clothespin using the metal portion as a guide. Don’t go past the metal with the pipe cleaner.

Hot glue your pipe cleaner in place. Hot glue googly eyes on top of your clothespin.

Paint the inside of your crocodile’s mouth red. Allow to dry completely before moving on to the next step. Using scraps of white poster board, create alligator teeth by zigzagging your scissors.

Hot glue the zig zag teeth in place. Turn over your Crocodile craft and glue a magnet to the back. Your magnet is finished and ready to hang your children’s masterpieces on the fridge
