Paper Snails Craft

We made these paper snails today to go along with our creepy crawlies theme.

I pre-cut the paper into snail shapes snails and drew an outline of a leaf. The kids decorated and rolled up the snails, starting from the back end.  Then they cut out and decorated the leaves and glued on the snails.

Update: I made some really tiny paper snails that were super adorable, You can pair them with some of the larger snails as babies. I don’t have a picture yet but I wanted to share!

It’s such a good idea. I think we will probably end up making more all week long!

The kids really liked decorating and rolling up the snail shells.  A few of them made more than one. We ended up using them to decorate our Summer bulletin board.

The idea for this snail craft came from: Snail Project by ArtforYoungChildren.blogspot.com
