These rainbow snake pots are made from sticks of coloured plasticine (modelling clay). As well as looking bright and cheerful on our playroom shelf, making them provided Immy with a wonderful opportunity to put her developing fine motor control skills to good use.
Immy rolled each stick of plasticine out into a thin snake,
Curling the very first snake around itself to form the base of the pot.
Then carefully, carefully she wound each snake around the very outside of the base to form the wall of the pot, starting each new colour where the previous one had finished and smoothing the ends together gently.
