Elbowgator This shirt bites -- but only when your child "chomps" with his arms. Have your child put on the shirt and bend his arms as shown. Place a piece of masking tape on the top elbow to mark where the gator's nose will go. Have your child remove the shirt. Cut three stamps from adhesive felt: a triangle (ours is about 1 inch tall) and two circles (ours are 2/3 inch and 1 inch). Adhere each shape to the end of a cork or a marker cap. Lay the shirt facedown, sleeves outstretched. Dip the triangle stamp in white fabric paint and stamp teeth just above the seam of the sleeve with the tape mark. Stamp two larger circles for the eyes and the nose, as shown. On the other sleeve, stamp teeth below the top fold. When dry, use the smaller circle stamp and black paint to add dots to the eyes and nose. Let the paint dry.
