snake-tieGrade Level: 5th-7th
Category: General
Sub: stuffed animals

Materials:

  • Neckties
  • Stuffing
  • Google Eyes
  • Red Felt – for tongues
  • Hot Glue
  • Needle and Thread

Instructions:

  1. Snip the tie at a few places along the seam. (Be careful not to snip to many places- or the whole tie will fall apart!)
  2. Stuff the tie with stuffing. (Do not over stuff!)
  3. When done stuffing- it is best to sew the tie back together- using simple stitch (some kids can do this)- but an adult should be supervising.  If there are places that need extra reinforcement- hot glue them.
  4. Glue on eyes and tongue.
