A for Alligator

Alligator Paper Piecing

~Teasing Mr. Alligator - Paint or color a clothespin green and add 2 googly eyes for Mr. Alligator (or use sharpie to draw eyes). Print 5 monkey clipart images and cut them out. Laminate your monkeys.
Place a small ball of playdoh or sticky tack on the back of each monkey and “hang” them from a tree (a fireplace mantel, edge of a chair or table). 
Say the rhyme below and each time, have your preschooler snap or clip that monkey right out of that tree with the clothespin Mr. Alligator!
Five little monkey swinging in a tree
Teasing Mr. Alligator, “Can’t catch me!”
Along comes Mr. Alligator, as quiet as can be
And SNAPS that monkey right out of that tree
