Alligator Feltboard

Here's one of my favorite felt boards.

I drew and cut out all the pieces myself. I used a googly-eye for the alligator. And a bit of white felt for his teeth. I think he turned out great! The fish, I'm not quite as pleased with. I drew their features on using permanent marker, and I'm thinking I could have cut out fins and the like in a contrasting felt color, instead.

The song I sing for this one goes like so:

Five little fishies, swimming in the sea, teasing Mr. Alligator, "Can't catch me! Can't catch me!"

And along comes Mr. Alligator... jaws open wide! And SNAP! There's another fishie, deep inside...
(and so on, and so forth, until all the fish have been eaten)

I guess the more popular version of the song has "five little monkeys, sitting in a tree," but, I learned this with fish, so fish it is!
