It's really easy to be creative with your kids without having to spend a fortune on arts and crafts materials. This paper plate snake is lots of fun for young kids to make and doesn't take too long, so they don't get bored.
Just a few simple low cost items needed
: Just a few minutes to cut the snake and as long as you like to decorate
: Under 5's
My son really enjoyed running around with his snake after we had made it and making sssss snake sounds.
If your child has older siblings they can join in too. You might want to cut the snake spiral first so that they can see the shape and then they can draw a more detail pattern on the body.
The snakes can be hung up after playtime has finished for a jungle themed decoration.
