Cardboard slithering snake craft
Sometimes the best crafts are the most simple ones! My little guy has had so much fun making and playing with this cute little cardboard slithering snake craft. Since lockdown started back in March we’ve been ordering so much more stuff to the house rather than going out to buy it. We’ve ended up with this massive tower of cardboard boxes that we’ve slowly been trying and failing to stuff in the recycling bins. Hence why todays craft is made from old boxes! My son actually came up with the idea to make snakes after seeing some grass snakes near our house and we just love how they’ve turned out!
You will need
An old box
Paint or markers
How to make a slithering snake
First take your cardboard box and cut out some similarly sized ovals to make the snakes body. We made 5 ovals per snake but you can make your snake as long as you like!
Now its time to decorate your snake! Why not add some fun zig zags or paint and print some bubble wrap to look like scales?!
Once dry its time to piece your snake together! Start with the head piece and then pin each consecutive one underneath the previous one using your split pins.
Finish off your awesome cardboard slithering snake craft by giving him two eyes and a pipe cleaner tongue, so much fun!
