Alligator Paper Puppet

We’re doing a lot more reading around this house, and I love to include some crafting time in with our reading. Making puppets, like this alligator puppet, is a fun way to do this. Earlier I showed you how to sew a bunny puppet. This paper alligator puppet is even easier – with lots of ways for little hands to help!
