Bring their learning space to life with a DIY Crayola alligator organizer, perfect for their pens, markers, colored pencils and more. It’s an easy (and adorable!) afternoon craft that might even make cleanup time a little more exciting — win-win. Here’s what you’ll need:
Crayola paint brushes
Crayola construction paper
Crayola Take Note™ permanent markers
Crayola washable paint
Crayola no-run school glue
Crayola No. 2 pencils
Cardboard paper towel tubes
Once you have at least two cardboard paper towel tubes handy, grab the kiddos, all your supplies and follow these steps:
Using scissors, cut two cardboard tubes into thirds.
Paint the cardboard tubes green or even just their favorite color. Let them dry for 1–2 hours, apply a second coat and let dry for another 1–2 hours.
Stand up six cardboard tubes and glue them together in a straight line.
Using construction paper and pencils, sketch out the design of your alligator’s mouth, arms, legs and tail. Cut out each piece and glue them to the cardboard tubes.
Sketch and cut out the alligator’s teeth and glue to the inside of the mouth.
Glue wiggle eyes to the top of the head. Let all glued pieces dry for 1–2 hours.
Get creative! Add details and designs to the alligator’s head and tail.
Once dry, fill each tube with supplies and start organizing their learning space!
