Pony Bead Snake Craft

Threading small items onto a line helps young children develop and refine the fine motor skills necessary for writing. During our preschool homeschool lesson on reptiles, my daughter and I created pony bead snakes.


  • Pipe cleaner
  • Pony beads


  1. Twist one end of the pipe cleaner around a bead.
  2. Thread the pony beads onto the pipe cleaner.
  3. Twist the other end of the pipe cleaner around the final bead.
