Learn and repeat back as the YMCA Camp Colman team sings the Alligator Song! Then create your own friendly alligator and designate a time to be alligator o'clock!

The Friendly Alligator

Materials Needed:

  • 1 clothespin
  • Markers, paint, or other decorating tools

How to play:

  1. Decorate and draw on the clothespin to make it look like an alligator!
  2. Clip alligator to family/household number (Without them noticing if possible).
  3. If you find the alligator on you, continue to clip alligator on to someone else
  4. Designate a time to be alligator o'clock!(We recommend no more than 2 alligator o'clocks per day)
  5. Whoever is wearing the friendly alligator when it turns alligator o'clock gets to sing the alligator song!

Here are some examples:
