Colourful Paper Plate Snail

The warmer weather has arrived and with it we have had an influx of bugs in the garden and even a few venturing inside. Around a week ago a little snail came to visit it was spotted making it's way across the room, the kids enjoyed looking at it and watching the way it moved (they wouldn't hold it) before we returned the snail to the garden.

You Will Need
Paper Plate
Coloured Paper
Thin Cardboard
Black Marker
Wiggly Eye

To Make
1 .Draw a spiral on the paper plate not only will this guide where the coloured paper is stuck it is also a great chance to talk about spirals
2 .Cut the coloured paper into small squares or rectangles - we used crepe paper but I think normal coloured paper would be better as the glue will not show through
4 .Cut out a snail body from thin cardboard - we used coloured cardboard but if you don't have any you could get your child to colour the snail body with a crayon or marker
4 .Stick the coloured paper to the paper plate snail shell
5 .Stick the eye onto the snail body
6 .Stick the paper plate shell to the snail body
7 .Let Dry
8 .Redraw the spiral on the snail shell with a marker pen

Love it!
Snails in our garden have caused a stir recently, as Kahlei screams "Snake!" when she sees one, lol. I keep telling her they're snails, but she seems to forget everytime!

These are cute! It actually looks like the markings on a real snail shell.

Becky - Liam use to yell 'Snake' at random twigs and sticks I am so pleased he has grown out of it :)

Thanks Darcey it did turn out cute :)
