construction paper snake

This project is intended for kids ages 3+. Make this slithering paper chain snake using construction paper. Make it look realistic and have fun with your new pet!
Step 1

Measure and cut 1" x 12" [2.5 cm x 30.5 cm] strips of paper, then cut them in half (1" x 6" [2.5 cm x 15.2 cm]).

Step 2

Glue the ends of one strip together, creating a circle. Thread a second strip through the circle and glue the ends together to link the two together. Continue linking all of your strips for one long chain. Let glue dry.

Step 3

Fold a piece of paper and cut a u-shape. This will be the snakes face. Glue the bottom part to the inside of the chain.

Step 4

On top of the snake’s face, glue two wiggle eyes. Cut a small strip with a "V" cut out for the snake's tongue and add any embellishments you wish to decorate the snake's face.
