# 1 For a simple craft activity, make a snake mobile from a paper plate. Draw on the plate an unbroken
line from the outside rim in a spiral that winds its way to the centre. Cut along this line and you should
have a curly snake, which the children can color in. Because the snake will naturally curve around, it will
be easy to wrap this around a bamboo pole or garden stick to complete the visual aid.

# 2 Clay Snakes
Materials Needed: orange or brown clay,
craft sticks, paper plates Directions: Using
orange or brown clay, have the children make
their own snakes. Then give each child a craft
stick and have him/her wrap the snake around
the pole. Set the snake on a paper plate and
let dry.

# 3 A Serpent of Bronze
Materials Needed: red cardstock with spiral
snake outline, bronze metallic paint, paintbrushes,
scissors, hole-puncher (optional), chopsticks
(optional), red yarn or ribbon (optional) Directions:
Have the children cut out the spiral snakes; then,
allow them to paint bronze designs onto the “fiery”
red snakes. Have older children attach the snake
to a “pole” using the hole-puncher, ribbon,
and chopstick.
