Flying Snake Craft Idea

paperplates-art-projectLooking for something that is fun and relatively inexpensive to do with your kids? Look no further than a paper plate and scissors.  This craft is so quick and easy .  The great part is that you probably have the materials readily available in your home.

All you need are paper plates, scissors, yarn, a hole punch, and finger paint.


  1. Start with the fun part. Cover the entire paper plate with paint.
  2. Wait for it to dry.  Use the scissors and cut the plate from the edges in a spiral going all the way until you reach the snake’s head.
  3. Use the hole punch to make the eyes for the snake on the head (innermost circle).
  4. It is through the “eye holes” that the string, or yarn is secured.

Now you are ready the let the snake run wild.

Summer is a time for your imagination to run wild. Therefore, using a little creativity and some basic household materials you can create anything.

Enjoy! Have fun!
