  Snake Ovals Craft
This is a very easy cut and paste craft for young children or it can be made more challenging for older children.

The snake is composed with ovals to form a letter S, and the ovals also showcase letter S.

Cut and Paste Method:

  1. Print the positioning template and your choice in color or coloring format snake ovals template with letter S or plain. The positioning template can be printed directly on a brown or tan color paper, and the ovals to green paper, then color in the letter S with red.
  2. Skills > Color recognition, counting and oval shape:
    Identify the oval shapes in the template. Most snakes hatch from soft shelled eggs. Count the ovals needed to complete the craft. Adult can print numbers to the positioning template and numbers to the oval pieces to match in number order.  Identify that the ovals are green.
  3. Color the template if applicable. Cut out the ovals and head.
