Pipe cleaner snakes

Today’s craft is a 5 minute make. My son loves all things animal and today he asked if we could make a snake from a fluffy pipe cleaner that he found in the craft box. After a bit of trial and error we came up with these pipe cleaner snakes. we used a glue gun to make this cute little guy and it was secure enough for my three year old to be able to play with without it breaking. All for less than £1 of materials!

You will need

Pipe cleaners
Large pom pom
Googly eyes
Glue gun
Scissors

Take your two coloured pipe cleaners and twist them together at one end. Continue to twist them together all the way down to make one thick stem and secure them tightly at the end.

Glue your large pom pom on one end of your stem to make your snake’s head.

Give your snake two googly eyes. All that’s left to do now is to make the tongue. Take a short length of pipe cleaner and pinch it into a V shape. Glue the pipe cleaner tongue as deep as possible into the pom pom to make sure its secure.
