How to make our paper chain snakes

Cut out several equal sized strips from the coloured card. You’ll probably need at least 6 plus to make a long enough snake.

Create a loop with your first strip and then continue paper chaining your strips until you reach your desired length

Now it’s time to make the head! You’ll want the head to be the same on both sides so the easiest way is to take a piece of card and fold it in half. From the fold line draw a tab to chain with and then add the shape of the head. Once you’re happy with your shape go ahead and cut it out.

Cut out a tongue and glue it down on the bottom side of the head. Add two googly eyes and any extra details then thread the head through the chain and glue together at the mouth as you can see above.

Finally we need to add the tail! Cut out a long thin triangle and glue it around the tail to finish your snake!
