Springy Spiral Snake

Contributed by Leanne Guenther

You've probably made springy coil snakes from paper plates at some time in your life -- I remember making one at camp about 25 years ago (eep, has it been that long already!?).

craft instructionsNote:  To make a Halloween paper plate version, you just paint the paper plate orange or black (or your choice of snake color).  Then you cut a coil shape from the paper plate, decorate it further as a snake and hang it from the roof.

On this page, I've provided instructions and a paper craft template that makes a similar project to the traditional paper plate coil snake.
