Spring could be a very rainy season and children (and parents too) could get bored of it. When children are tired and bored of the same games in rainy days it’s time to “build” a new friend together to play with.
This project is easy and keeps children very busy for some time during the work and then they will play with it for days.
This funny project is a good one to make with little children too. Little children should be helped more but they will have great time.
Just my last suggestion: if you have more than one child, make a snake for each child. I made just one snake with my two children and when we finished it they started to fight for the snake.
What you need
- 4 or more rolls of toilet paper
- Split pins
- White paper
I had 6 rolls of toilet paper and I gave three to each of my children to decorate with crayons.
My little one needed lots of time to decorate just one roll because she had no idea and she didn’t know what to do, so I helped a little bit decorating the rolls and giving her ideas on decorations.
Anything is a good decoration: colored circles, hearts, stars, lines, etc.
Anything your children like to draw.
When all the rolls are decorated, cut two small triangles on each side like in the pictures.
In order to join the rolls together, make little holes on each side where you are going to put the split pins. Do not allow your children to do this step because it’s very dangerous!
Then join the rolls with split pins like in the pictures below.
Repeat this step for each roll.
On a white paper drawtwo funny eyes and a long red tongue with crayons and cut them out.
Remember to help little children during this step and please do not allow your little ones to cut with scissors.
Stick the eyes and the tongue on the very first roll.
And here your Friendly Snake!
Don’t forget to give it a funny name!
