Flying Snake Paper Plate Craft for Kids
Paper plates are one of the most versatile crafting staples. We love paper plate crafts because they work so well for kids of any age. Paper plate animal crafts are usually preschool and Kindergarten crafts, but this has an art element that can also be part of a STEAM project for older kids or created just for fun.

We covered our paper plate with paint.
After it dried, we used scissors and cut a spiral around the outside of the plate, circling all the way to the snake’s “head”.
At the head, we used the hole punch to pop out two eyes for our snakes. Through the eye holes we threaded the yarn.
