INSIDE: Paper Chain Snake Craft is a fun craft to make with kids. Its also a great fine motor activity for toddlers and preschoolers! A an adorable way to make a snake for all ages!
Paper Chain Snake Craft
Grab two different coloured construction paper. I used orange and green to create our snake. Fold the paper in half, fold it again and once more to make 8 sections. Invite your little one to cut along the lines to create 8 strips. Repeat with the other colour.
Take a glue stick and create a circle or ring with one colour strip. Grab another strip and slip it into the circle and then create another circle with that strip by glueing it together. Continue alternating colours as you go.
Cut out a large triangle and a small triangle and a red tongue. Glue googley eyes and tongue to the large triangle.
Glue the large triangle to one end and smaller triangle to the other end as the tail.
Add form shapes for decoration.
This activity is good for kids 3 years and up. My kids are 3.5, 3.5, and 7 year old.

Make quiet time their favourite time!
Play is at the core of learning during the early years and it can take many forms. One of the most important of these is sensory play because it engages all of a child’s senses (taste, touch, smell, sight and hearing) and has a enoumous positive impact on brain development.
My Sensory Play Kits are a fun and easy way to keep your child engaged while at the same time capitalizing on the benefits of sensory play to nurture their mind!
