Snake Craft and Books

This kids might enjoy making this wiggly craft snake (a reptile).





Materials

  • 3-4 toilet paper rolls
  • scissors
  • paint and paint brush and/or construction paper
  • glue
  • string, yarn, etc.
  • googly eyes (optional)
The directions suggest construction paper but we used paint.

Directions for this snake are at DLTK's website.

There are lots and lots of great snake books for kids that can be read before or after making the snake. Here is a small selection plus a couple of snake coloring books for kids.
