Make a snake from a paper plate


Paper plates, scissors, colouring pens/pencils, ribbon, string or pipe cleaners, glue, sellotape.


Cut the paper plate in a spiral from the outside edge, a bit like peeling an apple.
Stop near the middle.
Draw a snake face in the middle, draw fangs or add pipe cleaner or ribbon for the fangs and tongue.
Decorate the curly body of the snake with zig zags, triangles or other snake designs.
Attach string or ribbon to the back of the head to hang the swirly snake by.
