Diane from the FreeKidsCrafts team created this cute little beaded snake. It is simple to make and lots of fun to play with.
Green pipe cleaner
Mini wiggle eyes
Mini jingle bells
Scrap of red felt or foam
Thread spaghetti beads on green pipe cleaner leaving enough room to thread two small jingle bells to act as rattles on the tail.
Glue two mini wiggle eyes on the last bead on the other end as eyes.
Cut a tiny sliver of red foam or felt with a V in the middle for the snake's tongue and glue to the last bead as a tongue.
Now you have your own little snake pocket pal to play with at any time.
