Rated 5 out of 5 by from Captured everyone's attention -- a great project! We used magic markers to color the wooden snakes, and the children were very excited about the project. The older group (Grades 4-8) was intrigued by wiggling the snakes back and forth, as well as by decorating them to resemble actual snakes. The younger group (Grades 1-3) were quite serious about the coloring, and focused all their attention on choosing colors. Both groups were proud of their work and anxious to take them home to show them off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These were just as described Ordered for my son’s 3rd “Reptile themed” birthday. The snakes were a huge hit. We painted them with craft paint and some kids colored with perminate marker and both worked great. I was happy that there were no broken or damaged snakes in the package.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from kids like them I spray paint some of them through a tennis racket-like screen, or I put stickers on them before painting then pull them off. I've even wrapped tape around some for a spiral effect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good art project for group Snakes are a decent size. They are good for painting and allowing kids to use their creativity. A bit pricey (about a dollar for each one) but good quality. They wiggle and squirm too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Purchase Got these snakes for a library time craft. They were all in great condition and the kids loved painting. At first I thought they were a bit small but the kids spent about a half hour painting.

where are these made?

Can these wooden snakes be painted with watercolors, tempera, or poster paints? Or do they need acrylic paint for good coverage?

I'll be using them with children age 4-12 and hope to avoid acrylic.
Asked by: joyceingeorgia
You would be able to use tempura paint on these but acrylic paint would work the best.
