    Snakes like to bask in the sun. They also love to hide in grass and weeds. Color grassy tufts on two-thirds of a piece of Color Wonder™ Paper with Color Wonder Paints. Air-dry the paint.

    On another piece of Color Wonder paper, paint a lively snakeskin pattern. Fill the entire page with color. Air-dry the snakeskin, too.

    Fold the grass page in half lengthwise. Tear into the folded edge to make blades of grass. Roll the folded torn length into a cylinder. Tape the edges closed.

    Crumple and tear the patterned paper into a snake. Bend it to form a head and coil it around at the tail. Snake your reptile inside the grass, perhaps with its head peeking through the blades.
