We’re now in the Year of the Snake!  Celebrate by making this cute and super easy snake from a toilet paper tube.

Start by having your child paint the tube.  We used a mix of red, yellow, and orange.  You can make it as complicated or as simple as your painter feels like making it.  Be sure you have your surfaces covered, because painting a tube can be tricky (messy).

Here’s the boring part: wait for your tube to get really dry.

When it is dry, mom can cut the tube in a spiral pattern, turning your tube into a snake!

We gave our snake a tongue and eyeballs to really complete his look.

I am a certified K-12 Art Educator who lives, works, and blogs from Philadelphia, PA. I have a background in the studio arts (printmaking, photography, fiber arts and design), and am interested in making, collaborating, collecting, and recording things. One of my main goals as a grown-up is to help kids increase their visual literacy, by exposing them to art history, introducing vocabulary, and teaching kinesthetic art making skills. These lessons in visual literacy often take place in an intentional classroom setting, but just as well might happen at home, working on a project!
