Something about this letter A craft looks different in the moonlight, like it's opening wide for a midnight snack. Cut up some shapes and make this cute letter A alligator with your child, and she'll always remember this first letter of the alphabet! Can she think of any other animals that start with A?

What You Need:

  • Large sheet of paper
  • Construction paper in green and white
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Markers


What You Do:

  1. Have your child measure and cut out three strips of green paper about a foot long and two inches wide.
  2. Now have her cut one of the strips in half.
  3. Glue two long strips and one of the shorter strips to the large sheet of paper, in the shape of an A. Turn the sheet to the side.
  4. Cut ten small triangles out of white paper, for teeth.
  5. Now she can glue the triangles to the inside of the legs of the A.
  6. With the remaining short strip of green paper, draw two bumps (or the letter B!) and cut this shape out.
  7. Glue this B shape above the point of the A, for the alligator's eyes.
  8. Now your child can cut out eyeballs, or draw them in with marker. She can get really creative and decorate the alligator with a bow, a hat or eyelashes!
