Last week we finished our “jungle animal theme” and one of our craft activities was “snake threading”. I still had some colored pasta from our last threading activity, so there was not a lot to prepare and the kids loved it.
I introduced Miss Snake during morning carpet time, so all of my kids had an idea of what they were supposed to do and what the final result should look like. I had already prepared circles with laces and googly eyes; the children only had to do the lacing and sticking eyes part.
- Laces / thread (to make threading easier for some children I tied a piece of pipe cleaner on one end)
- green cardboard circles
- googly eyes + liquid glue
- lots of pasta
We got: Lovely pasta snakes!
This art activity was inspired by the Patterned Bead Snakes activity that you can find on messforless.net. I think their snakes are super adorable.
Do you use pasta for threading craft activities? Please share your ideas and post a link to your blog post, if you like!
