Snakes, Tears, and Grocery Stores

So we were at the grocery store Saturday night,
and my little t-ball playing boy became highly attached to this guy.

A creepy, little snake.
We're talking end of the world -
- meanest mom in the world -
- tears -
kind of attached.
What the?

So, I assured him that I have LOTS of fabric and we could make him
a perfectly awesome snake this week.

He agreed.

However, as we walked away from Mr. Snake and left him in
his home of Aisle 7 of the grocery store,
he continued to talk about this snake I would be making him,
and I realized he's expecting me to make
an exact replica of his beloved grocery store snake.


I'm good.
But not THAT good.

I came home and started researching.
I've found several ideas that are promising . . .

{Totally Smitten Mama}

{Get Your Craft On}

{Funky Friends Factory}

But are not *EXACTLY* what JT is hoping for.
However, I'm hoping I can combine the things I've found,
with the picture he insisted I take,
to create the most awesome snake evah!

Wish me luck.

All of these ideas are great! Children have a way of forgetting and bouncing back. I think whatever snake you make will be great!

I think if you put a wire in the snake it should curl up like the grocrey store one.
