Paper Pattern Snakes
Supplies you will need:
- Construction paper strips in a few colors.
- Googly eyes or sequins
- Small piece of red felt for tongue
“A” starts stringing her patterned tubes on the yarn. STRETCH!
B really surprised me by doing a more complicated pattern on her snake. She used three tubes of each color.
Even Little C got into the act. Her snake starts out looking like a pattern but that is just a coincidence. She has no idea what a pattern is and just randomly made her snake.
“A” double checks her snake to make sure she has the correct pattern.
When the girls were done stringing the tubes, they glued on sequin eyes and a red felt tongue. Here are our finished pattern snakes.
After what seemed like forever, the glue had dried and the kids were able to play with their pattern snakes.
