Kid Craft: Paint a Snake

Looking for a cheap activity to do with your kids? I thought this one was great because it not only gave us an opportunity to be crafty, but we also had a cool toy snake afterwards the boys could play with!

I found the wooden snake at Hobby Lobby when all of the wood items were 50% off.  The snake was regularly priced $1.99 so I got it for only $1!  They had lizards too.

Game Plan:

1. Line table with newspapers or other paper to protect it from paint

2.  Squirt paint onto a paper plate

3.  Paint one side of the snake and let dry

4. Flip painted side over, paint the other side and let dry.

We kept things simple and painted the other side blue

5. Use a permanent marker to make eyes on the snake

Rylan and I painted our snake on Tuesday, which was perfect because it was rainy and dreary outside here in Missouri!
