Snake made out of toilet rolls

Snake Toilet Roll Craft

Make your very own wriggling snake with leftover loo rolls. Yay for recyling.  

Grab these materials…

  • 6 x Loo rolls (don't chuck them, recycle them!)
  • Paint for your snake (any colour)
  • Bobble eyes (or your can draw your own)
  • Glue
  • Felt-tip pens
  • Scissors
  • Paper fasteners
  • Red paper or ribbon

Start by…

Getting your loo rolls lined up and paint them the colour of your snake. Put them aside and wait for them to dry.

Next you…

Carefully cut the ends of each loo roll into a point. Be accurate and neat!

Then…

Take your pens and draw the scales neatly all along your snake's body.

After that..

Make a small hole at the tip of each point using a compass or needle. Then start building your snake by connecting each tip using paper fasteners.

Almost there…

Cut out a forked tongue using your red paper and draw or stick on your googley eyes. All that's left is to give your snake a name! Susan? Sammy?

 

HERE'S A TRICK

Pipe cleaners are a great substitute for paper fasteners and they give extra texture to your snake.
