Remember our game Pretending to be Dora and Diego? It is one of my preschool son’s favorite games, I hide an animal, give him a map and tasks and he needs to go rescue the animal. Sometimes that is not enough and he wants to train the animals too! This is a fun “make a snake” activity where my Z-man got to make a snake, and then “train his snake”. Who knows, maybe this snake will become an “animal rescuer” too!
What you need to create a toilet paper snake:
Lots of toilet paper rolls, yarn to connect them and a little boys neck with which to wear the finished product.
We talked about how snakes can’t walk and practiced making our snake slither. Z-man also made his snake dance to the music and we had fun counting the sections of the snake by ones and by twos. Want to reinforce your “snake” learning? Here is one of our favorite books, all about creepy crawling reptiles:
