Children enjoy making crafts that they can use during pretend play, such as a toy snake. One way to make a snake craft even more beneficial is to make it out of materials that would ordinarily be thrown away, such as bottle caps. You can paint bottle caps with acrylic paint, poke a hole into each cap, and then string the used bottle capes into a chain to create a whimsical, playful snake.
