We love simple paper plate crafts! We used a simple collage technique to make the pattern on the snake – it looks really effective!

To make these snakes we used:

  • White paper plates
  • White glue
  • Small pieces of construction paper and tissue paper in greens/browns/yellows
  • Mod Podge Washout for Kids
  • Scissors
  • Red construction paper
  • Googly eyes

My son decided to make two snakes – a small “mommy” one and a baby one! The baby one he just wanted green. I spread some glue over the back of a small paper plate and he covered it in green paper pieces.

Then he made the bigger snake, but using the other colours.

We brushed everything in a layer of Mod Podge Washout – this glued down any overlapping pieces and also gave everything a shiny smooth look. This stage is totally optional  – it depends what kind of finished look you want for your snake!Paper Plate Snakes - a fun and frugal craft for kids to make

I cut the plates into a spiral, shaping the head in the centre.Paper Plate Snakes - a fun and frugal craft for kids to make

Then we glued on a forked tongue and some eyes! The snakes were complete!
