Ssssssssimple Ssssssssstripy Ssssssssnakes ..... This a lovely quick craft for a little ones and can provide hours of fun to play with.
First get a bag of rice, I used a 1kg bag of value rice from Sainsbury's (45p), cut the top off and pull the sock over the opening. Then comes the fun bit, turn the bag and sock upside down and the rice should pour straight into the sock.
Once all the rice is in the sock, take out the empty bag and tie a knot in the open end of the sock. In the picture I've used children's socks, which will happy take a full 1kg bag, if you are using an adult sock you might need more rice - depending on how well fed you want your snake to look.
The toe of the sock has a seam line which is perfect for your snake's mouth. Cut a forked tongue from the red felt, apply glue to the unforked end and stick the tongue into the seam of the toe pinching it over the end of the tongue to stick it into place.
Add two googly eyes above the toe seam and your sssssssnake is ready to ssssssslither.
