Step one: Use a pencil to draw the mouth of the alligator. Paint the mouth with two applications of pink paint.
Step two: Paint the rest of the box green. Be sure to remove the sliding lid and paint it separately, otherwise the paint will seal the box closed when it dries! Two applications of paint were enough to cover the wood completely.
Step three: Glue two wood doll heads together. Place a line of glue around the opening at the base of the doll head, and glue them together base to base. This will create the alligator’s eyes. Paint the back half of the eyes green.
Step four: Use the white paint to finish the front of the eyes. Use a fine tipped brush to paint white triangles on the pink paint to create teeth for the gator.
