Snake Pencil Topper

This snake pencil topper is a great mess-free craft activity, particularly useful for the classroom or a group. Try it for Chinese New Year of the Snake? It might also be a fun craft for a reptile themed birthday party. To make the activity completely mess-free by avoiding any gluing, you could use sticky wiggle eyes and a glue dot to attach the tongue. Scroll down for instructions.
