Easy and inexpensive to make, paper plate snake craft for kids.  Cut apart in sections for a bendable snake.  Kids crafts for St. Patrick's Day, Chinese New Year or Bible Study of Adam and Eve.  ActivitiesForKids.com
Create a wiggle snake from a paper plate and a couple of paper fasteners. Children can be creative decorating their snake- in this example dabs of water color paints mingled together to create a mottled pastel design.  By using the outer edges of the paper plate, the snake has a little more texture that if just regular card-stock paper is used.
MATERIALS:
  • Scissors
  • Paper plate
  • Google eyes
  • Craft glue
  • Small piece of red ribbon
  • 4 Paper fasteners (brads)
  • Hole punch
  • Paints, markers and other items to decorate the snake with.
  • Snake head pattern

INSTRUCTIONS:
  • Decorate the top of a paper plate with paints or markers. Use a pattern or random design.
  • Cut out the inside circle of the plate as shown above and cut the outer circle into 4 sections.
  • Cut out the snake’s head from the center part of the paper plate.
  • Slightly round each of the 4 pieces of the snake’s body. On one of the sections, snip the end for a pointed tail.
  • Punch a hole near the ends of the sections as show – with only one hole punch for the head and one for the tail.
  • Use the paper fasteners to attach the sections, so that opposite curves are connected (to form a bit of an S shape).
  • Attach the google eyes and small snip of red ribbon to the head.
