Step 1: Paint your lollipop sticks

Paint the lolly sticks in green paint.

You may need to do two coats.

Step 2: Make the legs

Cut one green pipe cleaner in half. Place one of the pipe cleaners near the top of your lolly stick.

Wrap it round the stick and twist it at the back, leaving the two ends sticking out.

These will be your croc’s legs.

Do the same and wrap another pipe cleaner towards the near end of the stick to make the back legs.

Wrap green pipe cleaners all along the lolly stick in between the two legs.

You might need two or three pipe cleaners to cover the whole area.

Leave the top and bottom areas of the stick clear.
