I have seen this craft with older style Easter eggs. The older style plastic Easter eggs do not have holes at the top for ventilation if a child puts them in their mouth. Using the older style eggs for this craft requires you to drill your own holes into the eggs. The newer style Easter eggs usually have two holes at the top and bottom of the eggs. The pre-drilled holes in the eggs make this craft really simple and easy to assemble.
Plastic Lacing Cord
Newer Style Plastic Easter Eggs with two holes on the top and bottom
Red Paper Tongue
- Knot the end of a strand of plastic lacing cord about 30 to 36 inches long.
- Thread the plastic lacing cord through one of the top shell openings. Continue threading the lacing cord through the top shells alternating the left and right holes as you go.
- Knot the end of the lacing cord when you have threaded all the top egg shells.
- Decorate the snake head using the bottom of one of the eggs. Attach googly eyes and a paper red tongue to the snake’s face. Then just snap it in place on the last top shell.
- Bend and slither your new recycled Easter Egg Snake.
