Make your own paper plate snake with your kids using the most fun tool of all- BUBBLE WRAP! It's easy and turns out very cute.
You will need a rolling pin, paper plate, green paint, bubble wrap, scissors, 2 googly eyes, ribbon, and glue.
First off, go into your kitchen and grab your wonderful rolling pin. This is going to make the coolest painting tool ever! Wrap a piece of bubble wrap around the pin and tape it. Squirt two shades of green on a flat surface and have your kids dip the whole thing into it.
Then have your kids roll it all over the paper plate almost covering the whole thing.
Let it dry for about 20 minutes and start cutting a spiral shape into the plate. Leave a rounded "head" at the end of the spiral.
Glue on two googly eyes, any size you want and cut a ribbon about 1-2 inches long. Your then going to cut a piece off the end to make it look like a snake's tongue.
Pick up the snake's head and dangle it around (ohh you know it's fun to do!)
