Such an easy way to brighten up old pencils or decorate new ones for use as party favours.

You will need:

  • Pipe cleaners
  • Plastic eyes (from a sewing or craft shop)
  • Some coloured paper – red or green works well
  • Glue eg. Bostik
  • Pencils
  • Scissors

What to do:

  • Make a loop at one end of the pipe cleaner for the snake’s head
  • Now wind the pipecleaner around the pencil from the bottom of the tail upwards
  • Place the pencil upright in a glass
  • Using glue, stick the eyes onto the head
  • Now cut out a tongue from some coloured paper
  • Glue it onto the tip of the head. Now you have a snake with googly eyes!
