Summer Reading Camp Gators ~ Easy Foldable Puppets!

Could these little gator puppets get any cuter? We made them today to celebrate the end of week one. I call it a "Following Directions Lesson" but who am I kidding?!?! It is the pure joy of making some Arts & Crafts! It takes about 20 minutes the first time you make them and then once the students understand the main fold, they can do it themselves at a center or during the Daily Five. We are the Gators, and that kills the FSU Seminole in me ~ but maybe one day our district will open a new school with the Seminole mascot & I can transfer ~ but we're a big Gator town, so I doubt it! 
This idea will work for lots of animals, pigs = pink, hornets or bumble bees = yellow, tigers = brown with stripes! You get the idea!


  1. Please tell me your school colors aren't orange and blue too :) As a FSU grad I feel your pain, but I grudgingly admit that the gators are really cute. Maybe that new school will come one day.

  2. Oh so cute!!! My class made puppets very similiar to these this last year to go along with a reader's theater of the 3 pigs and the wolf. We had too much fun with it:) Thanks for sharing, I'm a new follower:)
