Reptile Craft Project, Books, and Word Search Puzzle

Kids usually love learning about ANIMALS! In this craft activity the kids can PAINT a REPTILE on a T-Shirt and/or Tote Bag. As the paint is drying they can read some cool books about reptiles!

  • T-shirt and/or tote bag
  • stencil (lizard or other reptile)
  • fabric paint
  • paint brush or sponge brush
  • cardboard 

    • Place a piece of cardboard inside the T-shirt or tote bag. (The fabric paint will probably bleed through the front of the shirt.)
    • Place the stencil on top of the shirt (or tote bag) in the desired location.
    • Use a paint brush or sponge brush to paint inside the stencil.
    • Remove the stencil carefully.
    • Leave the cardboard inside the shirt.
    • Move the shirt carefully to a place where it can dry for approximately 24 hours.
    • Have the kids put on the shirts and read some awesome reptile books. Enjoy!
    • Put reptile books in the reptile tote bag for traveling and easy storage! 

      Some other reptiles that the kids could paint and/or read about are: alligator, chameleon, crocodile, dinosaur, gecko, iguana, skink, snake, tortoise, and turtle.

      If you would like a Reptile Word Search Puzzle for kids to complete that lists various types of reptiles, you could download a puzzle on my website. Click on the link below then go to Free Worksheets.

      Have fun crafting and learning about reptiles!

      I also have a Reptile Bingo Game at my TPT Store. You can view it here.


      1. Where did you get the stencil from?

      2. Hi Laurie, I think I got the stencil at Michael's arts and crafts store! Have fun with your project! :)
