Marker Monday - Rattlesnake

With the start of school, we've also had the chance to attend kid's activities at the local library after school. This month's theme is Cowboys! The librarian read the book Why Cowboys Sleep with Their Boots On.

Why Cowboys Sleep With Their Boots On (Why Cowboys Series)

It was  a funny story of how animals stole the cowboy's clothes everytime he got undressed and went to sleep. 

Our librarian had a really easy and cute craft for Yahoo's group to go along with this book I'm going to share with you today. You'll need a printer, crayons or markers, scissors, tape, empty water bottle and some dried corn or beans.

First, go to this website and print off the template of the rattlesnake and color it.

Then cut it out...pretty realistic isn't it? Ha!!

Put a handfull of dried corn or dried beans inside and close the lid tightly!

Tape the tail to the top of the bottle and wrap your snake around the bottle and tape the head down to the bottom. Finally, give it a good shake and there you have your rattlesnake!

Yahoo has already torn apart a few snakes by shaking them so much!

Does anyone have any good crafts for kids to share? I'm always looking for something new to do with Yahoo during the day.
