Beware of Crocodiles Game

This was SO fun! You can use the Beware of Crocodiles game to practice colors, numbers, words, shapes, or the alphabet.
Beware of Crocodiles Game
Dad helping B find his name
  1. Cut crocodiles out of green construction paper and draw eyes and sharp teeth.
  2. Then, I wrote our family’s names on index cards (this is where you’d substitute shapes, colors, letters, numbers, etc.).
  3. Line up the crocodiles down a hall or long area with the pile of index cards at the end.
  4. I told B to jump over the crocodiles like Diego and go find his name in the pile. (alternatives: tip toe, skip, bear crawl, bunny hop, etc.) In a dramatic voice I said, “Watch out for their sharp teeth! Don’t let them bite your toes.” but he said “Mom, they aren’t REAL crocodiles!”. Ok!

    This is a really good idea to make fun go along with learning. Especially if he likes Diego. My little girl loves Dora.

    Great idea for these cold weather-stuck inside days! When my son was younger he thought that he was THAT Diego! 🙂
    We just got your postcards! Diego was SO excited! I am going to try to get ours off this week.
