The alligator was a great addition to our Hide and Seek Jungle theme. What a fun birthday party prop. It was interactive, decorative and functional... Our birthday cake pictures came out so cute. All materials were purchased at our dollar store. I used animal and regular balloons to create his eyes.
The Alligator frame is our dining bench. A perfect transition piece from hide and seek to eating birthday cake on an alligator.
I used green plastic table cloth to cover the base, green party napkins to give texture to his legs and paper Pom Pom's to give a scale look. His materials cost $5 to make
His mouth was interactive. Kids had fun putting their heads in there. They also fed him cake. I used 2 foam boards. I cut a strip from each foam board to make his teeth. The red balloons held his mouth open.
