This is a good old favourite that I remember making as a kid and loving! It’s very straight forward and you probably have all of the materials already at home.
- Paper plate
First we coloured in the plate.
Then we cut it into a spiral.
Next we drew on some eyes and stuck on a tongue.
Finally we cut a piece of string, put a hole in the snake’s head, pushed the string through and tied a knot at the back.
And hey presto we had ourselves a snake!
As I always say a bit of arts and crafts is wonderful for motor skills, creativity, imagination, relaxation and so much more!
- When we got into the centre of the plate with our cutting we rounded off the end of the spiral to make it more head shape. We also cut a point at the very start of the spiral to look like a tail.
