To make the Egg Carton Snake you will need:

  • one egg carton
  • scissors
  • paint and paintbrush
  • glue (if you are adding a tongue or googly eyes)

  3. Trim the edges.
  4. Paint the snake
  5. Add eyes. You can paint them on like we did or glue on buttons or googly eyes
  6. You can also add a tongue if you have some red paper, string or pipe cleaners

The Loch Doon area was memorialized in celebrated Scottish poet, Robert Burns piece “Ye banks and braes O’ bonnie Doon”

Ye banks and braes o’ bonny Doon,
How can ye bloom sae fresh and fair?
How can ye chant, ye little birds,
And I sae weary fu’ o’ care?
Thou’lt break my heart, thou warbling bird,
That wantons thro’ the flowering thorn:
Thou minds me o’ departed joys,
Departed, never to return.

Aft hae I rov’d by bonnie Doon,
To see the rose and woodbine twine;
And ilka bird sang o’ its love,
And fondly sae did I o’ mine.
Wi’ lightsome heart I pu’d a rose,
Fu’ sweet upon its thorny tree;
And my fause lover stole my rose,
But, ah! he left the thorn wi’ me.
