Cut out all your snake shapes. You will need two strips of paper for each snake body (more for a longer snake), a snake head shape, and a tongue.

Glue two paper strips together to begin the accordion fold. Fold the paper strips accordion-style and secure with glue. You can glue two of these accordions together for longer snakes.
