Food Craft - Spicy Snakes on a Stick

A bread snake twisted around a skewer

To make these, you will need the following:

  • wooden skewers

  • 1 can (11 oz.) of breadstick dough (or crescent roll dough may be substituted)

  • raisins

  • ground cinnamon

  • cooking spray

Preheat oven to 190 degrees and line a baking tray with aluminum foil. Spray wooden skewers with cooking spray so the “snakes” will slide off easily. Wrap a strip of dough around a skewer, pinching one end for a tail and leaving a large head on the other end.

Next, press two raisins onto the head for eyes. Some may come loose during baking, but they can be placed back on the head or secured with a small drop of honey after removing them from the oven.

Next, sprinkle some ground cinnamon along the snakes’ bodies.

Now they are ready to bake. Bake in a preheated oven for 13-18 minutes. You will want them to be nicely browned, but not overdone. When finished baking, pick up a skewer and carefully slide the snake off.

Now it’s snack time!

Craft Activity - Bubble Snake

  1. Cut the bottom off a plastic bottle.

  2. Cut a flannel down to a size that will fit over the cut part of the bottle and attach with an elastic band.

  3. Mix up some washing up liquid and water in a bowl and dip the bottle in, flannel side down.

  4. Blow down through the neck end to create a foam snake. You may need to adjust the ratio but if you do it correctly you can make snakes over five feet long!

  5. If you dot the flannel with different food colourings then you can get rainbow bubble snakes.
