What do you do with all those plastic Easter Eggs after Easter? In the past I have saved them for the following year, which is great so I don’t have to keep buying them. But we go to the towns Easter Egg Hunt each year and our Plastic egg supply is getting pretty big.
So this year I decided I did not want to save them all, we just had too many. But I hate throwing things away so I figured we better make something out of them. And since Easter is over I did not want to make anything Easter like so we decided to do a snake. After all the top of an Easter egg actually looks like a snake head doesn’t it?
Supplies you need to make an Easter egg snake
- Plastic Easter Eggs (any number will work, the more you have the bigger the snake)
- Fishing Line
- Googly Eyes
- Red Foam Sheet
Steps to make your own recycled Easter egg Snake
- Separate the egg bottoms from the egg tops.
- Now thread your fishing line into one of the bottom eggs and tie it on the inside of the egg (see picture)
- Thread all the bottom parts of the eggs first, with your fishing line going in the left hole then the right hole (this will keep your snake even).
- Once all the bottom pieces are threaded start with the top pieces, the first one should match up with the last bottom piece so that you can close the egg.
- Just like the bottom pieces thread all the top parts with the line going in the left then the right hole.
- For you last one you will tie it just like the bottom one.
- Now glue the last egg to the 2nd egg. Then glue on your eyes and tong (cut it out from the foam paper).
- Once glue dries just play and have fun with your new Snake toy!
