Recycled Crocodile

Duration: any

Age: child

Skill for Bub: Hand/eye coordination, Just for fun


Start with some egg cartons, add some clever crafting, and end up with a fantastic chompy crocodile!

Great fun to make a few and them play with them. You can throw out an old towel
on the floor to make a ‘river’ for them to swim up and down.
