Make a snake

An easy craft kids can do themselves

Video: 5 Minute Fun | Words: Sara Conway 

You’ll just need 3 things for this make

A pipe cleaner (or wool)
Plastic beads (or Cheerios!)
And googly eyes (optional)

Now you and you and the kids are ready for this super snake make!

Set the kids the challenge of threading as many beads/Cheerios as they can to make the longest snake. They can also do different colours – this task can keep them busy as long as you keep the ideas coming (or at least until someone gets hungry, thirsty or needs the loo).
