Snakes Theme Party Ideas

Visit your local public library and check out different books on snakes. These look great as part of table centerpieces or as general decorations placed throughout your party area. They can either be laying flat or they can also be propped up in a half open fashion (remember to visit both the children's AND adult's section of the library.)

Make paper plate snakes! Get simple, paper plates and cut them in a spiral Starting from the outer edge begin cutting into the plate in a circular, spiral pattern (making several rotations into the plate before making your way to the center.) Once at the center, do your best to allow a 'knob' (not cutting ALL the way into the center.) The inner area of the spiral would be the head of the snake. You can hang the snake from the head by string, twine or ribbon…or even wrap them around your vines or streamers.

Look up some facts on snakes at your local library and periodically ask your guests them throughout the party, awarding points as you go (true or false might be the way to go for younger crowds). Give a prize to the individual with the most points at the end of the party.

 

For a desert snake feel, sprinkle sand around your centerpiece bases!

If you know of anyone with a pet snake, have them bring it to the party for your guests to pet. Keep in mind that snakes can be temperamental and might only want to be around people for a short while.

Toilet paper roll snakes! Gather some toilet paper rolls. Punch a hole at the edge of one tube and another hole across the tube from it. Take string, yarn, ribbon or anything else you have handy and string together two toilet paper tubes with the holes you punched. You can attach a Styrofoam head at the end of the tubes for the head, or just draw a face one of the end pieces of the snake. Now you can play with the snake and wiggle it around. You don't want too much space between the tubes, but enough for the snake to wiggle back and forth.
Make a snake cake! Bake two cakes in a bundt cake pan. Now cut the circles in half and lay them out making an "S" shaped cake. Put frosting between the ends to hold the cake together. Frost the entire cake green and use icing to make a snake face.
This is a quick and simple game useful for filler time between other activities. Hold a jump rope or simple rope in front of you on the ground stretched out. Tell the explorers that it's a python. They have to walk up to you and touch your hat - or hand, or whatever else you have - without touching the snake. Now, wiggle the rope by your end - making ripples. You could also attach a sock to the end of the rope and either sew or use a permanent marker to make a head for the end of the rope nearest the children.
