Hello CraftOManic readers. I am Tracey from We Made That.com I am super excited to be here and share this fun craft with you today! If you are like me you have a lot of left over plastic Easter Eggs around and have no clue what to do with them, well you can make a cute fun snake for your kids to play with.
What do you do with all those plastic Easter Eggs after
Easter? In the past I have saved them
for the following year, which is great so I don’t have to keep buying
them. But we go to the towns Easter Egg
Hunt each year and our Plastic egg supply is getting pretty big.
So this year I decided I did not want to save them all, we
just had too many. But I hate throwing
things away so I figured we better make something out of them. And since Easter is over I did not want to
make anything Easter like so we decided to do a snake. After all the top of an Easter egg actually
looks like a snake head doesn’t it?
Plastic Easter Eggs (any number will work, the more you have
the bigger the snake)
Read Foam Sheet
Separate the egg
bottoms from the egg tops.
Now thread your
fishing line into one of the bottom eggs and tie it on the inside of the egg
Thread all the bottom
parts of the eggs first, with your fishing line going in the left hole then the
right hole (this will keep your snake even).
Once all the bottom
pieces are threaded start with the top pieces, the first one should match up
with the last bottom piece so that you can close the egg.
Just like the bottom
pieces thread all the top parts with the line going in the left then the right
For you last one you
will tie it just like the bottom one.
Now glue the last egg
to the 2nd egg. Then glue on
your eyes and tong (cut it out from the foam paper).
Once glue dries just
play and have fun with your new Snake toy!
