Seed Pod Snake Project

Nature Craft Project

During the Fall season, there are many natural materials to be found.  We encourage kids to get outside and make some of their own finds.  So many sticks, rocks and even pieces of bark can be made into fun art projects.  This particular craft project uses seed pods.  Ours are from a catalpa tree but many trees send out pods with seeds or you can substitute twigs for this fun and colorful snake project.

This is the perfect homeschool activity for spending time outdoors.  Give each child a small bag to collect their found treasures, concentrating on finding seed pods and twigs that resemble snakes.

What you need:

  • Seed pods or sticks
  • Paint
  • Brushes

Let the kids paint their snakes in a variety of colors, incorporating stripes, dots etc. as they wish.
