Wiggly Pasta Snakes

Wiggly Pasta Snakes

My daughter loves creepy crawly creatures. Yesterday, we had a family photo shoot with a photographer in a nearby field. There was a snake slithering through the field where our photos were being taken. While the rest of us tried our best to avoid the snake, my¬†daughter went towards it. “I want to see the snake.” “I like snakes”, she told the photographer. She does like snakes… a lot.

If you have a child that likes snakes as much as mine does, here is a fun craft & fine motor skill activity.

Wiggly Pasta Snakes

String & alternate ziti & ditalini pasta onto a pipe cleaner. Leave about an inch off on each side.
