How to make a snake craft
Before starting any craft, make sure children are wearing old clothes – or an apron. Maybe cover the table using a newspaper, because if you do not have a plastic table, it could get messy.
TIP!! Hence, having a bowl of soapy water to one side of where your crafting is a great idea, children can wash hands after painting.
Firstly of all, before starting the colourful snake craft, you can either cut your tube roll first before painting or paint your tube roll first. We cut our tube rolls and then the crafty creators painted them.
Starting with the tube roll from the top, cut diagonal until you get to the other end. Also, this can be quite tricky for younger children to do.
One end needs to be rounded for the head, the other end needs to be cut like a sharp point end for the tail.
So now it’s time to paint your colourful snake craft! If you have a mixture of paints, it’s great because children can choose a colour. Also, the snakes need to dry before painting the other sides.
TIP!! Children will find it easier to paint the sakes when the tube roll has been straightened out.
Finishing the snake craft
To get the colourful snake craft curly again, children can wrap the painted straightened strip around another tube roll. Secure the tube in place for a few mins, then add a few paper clips to hold it together.
An easy snake craft activity for children to make. Why not give it ago? We would certainly love for you to make a lovely comment on the snake craft that the crafty creators have made.
