Terrific or terrifying – snakes are very cool animals and just as fun to draw. Pick up a pencil and have a go recreating thisss ssslithering ssserpent! You might even win a prize!
You will need:
- Some art supplies. This could be crayons, felt tip pens, a feathered quill, or even a toothbrush dipped in jam. Anything you fancy, really.
- Erm…that’s it.
Draw a squashed oval shape. This will become the snake’s head. We’ll be filling in the eyes and fangs later.
Now add a long, smooth neck.
Now draw the neck curling round underneath. This snake is going to be coiled up, so imagine it all twisting round in circles. This is a bit tricky to draw so don’t worry if it takes you a few goes to get right!
Continue drawing the snake coils. Or should that be snoils*?
And for the tail… Like so!
It’s finally time to add those snakey features. Big reptile eyes, flickering tongue… you could even draw some venemous fangs here if you fancied. And who doesn’t fancy fangs?
And now fill in the blanks! Your snake can be any colour at all – you could base it on a real life snake, or just make something up. Here are some more ideas!

Or how’s about…
The Sparkling Rainbow Constrictor!
