Handprint Alphabet – C is for Crocodile

| April 28, 2012 | 13 Comments

Well.. another week has passed ALREADY and we are on to C… Would you like to do a Chick (as Red Ted has chicks at school) NO! Would you like to do a caterpillar (as we have some caterpillars at home) NO! Would you like to do a cake (because we like cake) NO! How about a Crocodile (just because) YES!

Aha. Crocodile it is.

The tricky bit for the children is keeping your index finger and middle finger, as well as your ring finger and index finger together….So that the space between becomes the the “mouth”.  **If we made this craft again,  I would be tempted to leave the little finger free of paint** Red Ted is practising here. Pip Squeak didn’t manage, but still made a nice picture!

Make your handprint. Then turn the page 180 degrees and make a 2nd handprint for the body (with all the fingers together. Once dry, add some scary teeth, googley eyes, noses and spikes and details. We drew 4 legs and a “C fro the tail”….

    Thank you ladies, we really had fun with it! Red Ted is so excited – we have one set hanging by the kitchen table and one set in his bedroom. He calls them his pretend TV… and we like to make up stories with the first 3 pictures up!

  3. Adorable!! I love his teeth!

  5. I couldn’t love this more if I tried! Definitely going to start our own alphabet, then I can say SNAP!

    Loving the crocodile – much less boring than some of the other C words I guess too.

  7. A crocodile is an unexpected but wonderful choice for the letter C! I’m still in love with the handprint alphabet idea. :)

  8. Red Ted Art says:

    Aaaah thank you everyone! I do confess, that we were “rather pleased” with our C….. I hope I don’t disappoint with our more conventional D and E we have just made!!!
