How to make a play dough rainbow serpent:
- Make a sausage. Put play dough on the table and with both hands roll play dough back and forward with fingers extended and a flat palm. Aim to keep the sausage an even width throughout. (As you can see below, we are working towards using both hands together).
- Poke holes. Extend the index finger of one hand and curl the other fingers into the palm. Using the extended finger, make holes into the play dough sausage.
- Push coloured beads into the holes.
Lesson Learnt: Simple things can be beautiful.
