Make a peg crocodile

Make a peg crocodile

Have a crafternoon making some animals, starting with these cute peg crocodiles. Just add construction paper and googly craft eyes. You could make a whole float of them. Snap! Snap!

What you need:

  • 1 x wooden peg
  • 1 small piece green construction paper
  • 2 x googly craft eyes
  • 1 x green pipe cleaner
  • green paint
  • scissors
  • glue

Number of players:


Paint the peg green.

While the paint is drying, cut a small strip of green construction paper, about 1cm x 20cm.

Concertina fold the strip of green paper and glue it to the top of the peg (leaving enough room at the front for the croc's mouth). This is the crocodile's scaly body.

Glue the googly eyes in place.

Now cut two 4cm pieces from the pipe cleaner. Fold them into a "V" and then fold the tips to make feet.  These are the croc's legs. Set them in place along the body (see video).

Your croc is ready to swim down the river and scare the bejeezus out of tourists.

Never smile at a crocodile …
