We have a great storytime at our library and Miss Donna had the kids make these snakes this week, they were so great I had to share them. Plus I like a beading project a boy is interested in.

The triangles are cut in 3 sizes out of cereal boxes, with a hole punched in the middle of each. The head is a diamond folded in half, a hole in the middle, yarn strung through and stapled and a felt tongue. Large wooden beads are varied on the yard with the triangles, starting with the largest near the head and getting smaller. The tail is similar to the head, without the eyes.

A fun craft and a fun t

Kristen, you have got to be the best mom. Every time I get over here you just have the cutest things you have made or done with your boys. Keep up the good work. Kerry

Hi, I came via Crafty Crow. What a fun project! I'm drawn to this since I do so many crafts with cereal boxes. I just posted one earlier today, as a matter of fact. Thanks for a new idea.
