10 Sassy Snake Crafts for Kids
These Sassy Snake Crafts for Kids show that you can make snakes out of pretty much anything! From paper plates, cardboard tubes, egg cartons, socks & more!
You’d think that humans, with their high intellect, opposable thumbs and numerous joints can handle most situations with ease. Yet, this grand human will run at even the mention of a snake, let alone the sight of it!
Yes, snakes, those slimy, limbless creatures can give large monsters a run for their money, but they’re an important part of our wildlife and ecosystem. I’m sure most of us rarely think of snakes in that sense – we’re only concerned about the venom they pack in each bite!
And that’s exactly why we have World Snake Day, on 16th July, to appreciate these fascinating creatures who’re nature’s in-built pest control system. So let’s learn more about these sassy creatures with some sssimple and sssuper-fun snake crafts for kids!
