DIY- KIDS CRAFT {recycled easter eggs turned snake}

Hello CraftOManic readers.  I am Tracey from We Made  I am super excited to be here and share this fun craft with you today!  If you are like me you have a lot of left over plastic Easter Eggs around and have no clue what to do with them, well you can make a cute fun snake for your kids to play with. 

What do you do with all those plastic Easter Eggs after

Easter?  In the past I have saved them

for the following year, which is great so I don’t have to keep buying

them.  But we go to the towns Easter Egg

Hunt each year and our Plastic egg supply is getting pretty big. 

So this year I decided I did not want to save them all, we

just had too many.  But I hate throwing

things away so I figured we better make something out of them.  And since Easter is over I did not want to

make anything Easter like so we decided to do a snake.  After all the top of an Easter egg actually

looks like a snake head doesn’t it?


Plastic Easter Eggs (any number will work, the more you have

the bigger the snake)

Fishing Line


Googly Eyes

Read Foam Sheet

Separate the egg

bottoms from the egg tops.

Now thread your

fishing line into one of the bottom eggs and tie it on the inside of the egg

(see picture)

Thread all the bottom

parts of the eggs first, with your fishing line going in the left hole then the

right hole (this will keep your snake even).

Once all the bottom

pieces are threaded start with the top pieces, the first one should match up

with the last bottom piece so that you can close the egg.

 Just like the bottom

pieces thread all the top parts with the line going in the left then the right


For you last one you

will tie it just like the bottom one.

  Now glue the last egg

to the 2nd egg.  Then glue on

your eyes and tong (cut it out from the foam paper).

Once glue dries just

play and have fun with your new Snake toy!
