During the month of July, I started focusing on 'teaching' my 3 year old.  We focused on the letters A, B, and C as well as the numbers 0, and 1 along with some other topics.

One of the crafts we completed together was an alligator in the shape of the letter A.


  • googly eyes
  • construction paper
  • glue 
  • crayons 
  • scissors 

I pre-cut the letter A out of green construction paper and while he was coloring, I cut out teeth and scales for him to glue onto his creation.

Coloring the letter A in the shape of an alligator

I think his favorite part of the whole project was attaching all the pieces.  He just loves working with glue. 

Do your children have favorite way to learn the letters of the alphabet? Or perhaps a favorite type of reptile? We love alligators and crocodiles in this house!


Some alligator toys and books for your little ones.  We personally do not have the Schleich Alligator or VTech Go! Go! Smart Alligator but we have many other items from both companies and love them.

And I LOVE An Extraordinary Egg.  It is one of my favorite books for preschool-kindergarten age children.
