"Are you looking for education resources that you can use with your preschooler?

I am over the moon thrilled to begin sharing a letter of the week activity for preschoolers with you. Here is a great A is for alligator craft! These letter of the alphabet crafts make excellent weekly themes and help kids with letter recognition and fine motor development. I homeschool four of our boys. We use Sonlight’s awesome preschool curriculum which is full of memory making literature experiences. A few years back I became hungry to add more alphabet crafts to our routine for my youngest. This got me thinking, if I am looking for these activities for kids, you are too! I just did not have time to create the curriculum or activities from scratch.

These are great ideas for your homeschool, distance learning, at home daycare, preschool, mother’s day out, or just because! Are you ready to make this fun craft and teach letters to your little one? Let me show you how to make an alligator out of uppercase letters. "

Primary TechniquePaper Crafts


Materials List

  • Letter A template printed on colored paper (scroll to the bottom to download)
  • Alligator teeth template (scroll to the bottom to download)
  • Printed letter A’s – or A’s cut out of magazines or foam letters
  • 2 white circles (I used a circle punch)
  • green construction paper squares
  • black marker
  • scissors
  • glue stick or bottle


  1. Apply glue to the letter A. I prefer glue sticks because they’re less messy, but my kids did need to reapply the glue as they worked.

  2. Attach green “scales” to create your alligator.

  3. Cut out the alligator teeth. Depending on the age/ability of your preschooler, you may need to help with this.

  4. Glue the teeth inside the alligator’s mouth.

  5. Draw a black circle or oval inside each white circle for the eyes.

  6. Attach eyes to the alligator.

  7. Feed letter A’s to the alligator by gluing them inside his mouth. You can cut these out of magazines, use stickers, or use the printable.
