Let’s Make Snakes! (4)

TAL Straw Snake

Threading is such fun and even the littlies can do this one.  Make the tubes longer for older children and shorter for younger children.

You will need:

  • Paper or plastic drinking straws
  • String
  • Scissors
  • Scrap of green card and red paper
  • Stapler
  • Glue
  • Marker

Step One:

Cut the straws into short tubes.

Cut out the shape of the snakes head and a small triangle from the red strip. Stick the red strip onto the snakes head.

Draw the eyes on the snake’s head.

Step Two:

Thread the string through one tube and make a knot to keep all the tubes on the string.


Continue threading tubes onto the string until the desired length is reached. Leave about 3 cm of string from the last tube and make a knot in the string.

Step Three:

Attach the head to the string using the stapler

You are done! Have fun with this slithering, slinky snake 🙂
