According to the Chinese calendar, 2013 is the Year of the Snake. Celebrate the New Year with a new craft!



  • Toilet Paper Roll
  • Colored Paints
  • Scissors
  • Googly Eyes
  • Glue
  • Optional: Glitter and stickers for decoration


  1. Paint the toilet paper roll any way you would like.  Lots of color, one color, polka dots or stripes!  The choice is up to you.
  2. Once the paint is dry, have an adult help you use scissors to cut diagonally into the roll.  Follow the spiral all the way around.
  3. Pick which end will be the head of the snake.  Use the scissors to cut the shape of a snake head.  Don’t forget the snake tongue!
  4. Glue googly eyes onto your snake.
  5. Make your new reptilian friend unique with glitter or stickers.

Enjoy your creation!
From our family to yours, Happy New Year!
