Lets Start the Craft!!
Paint a paper plate on one side only in any colour. Bold colours look great, and using kids paint is fine too.
- Ask your child if their know the shape of the paper plate!!
- toddlers can learn the colour of the paint. Try it out!!
Leave the paper plates to dry out. They will go quite hard and bend up on the corners, don’t worry about this!! I love the colours that the Witches chose!!
Cutting the Paper Plate Snakes
Turn the paper plate onto the other side. With a pencil draw a spiral shape!! * I used a felt-tip to draw out the spiral shape to show you guys more of a clear picture.
Cutting the spiral and follow the lines. Adults may have to cut this out!!
Paper Plate Snakes Tongue
Draw and cut out a small tongue for the snake.
On the back of the snakes head, cellotape the tongue down.
Wiggly Eyes for the Paper Plate Snakes
Kids can now stick on the wiggly eyes using glue or self adhesive ones.
- Children can learn to count by counting the wiggly eyes!
With a sharp pencil and blu-tac, pierce a hole through the head part. Using wool or cotton thread feeding it through the hole and attach some cellotape to hold it down. Leave some length so children can use it pull the snake up and down.
Finished Paper Plate Snakes
What a fun and easy craft to do for kids. The Witches loved and played with the Paper Plate Snakes for hours, watching them blow in the garden. It was great watching the Witches running and the snakes flying behind them.
