Paper Snail Craft

Isn’t this the sweetest looking snail?!

It’s a super easy craft anyone can do with their preschoolers and even toddlers. I wanted this craft to be easy enough for Viktor (2) to do along with Alina (4), so I pre-cut the pieces of paper ahead of time, prepared a couple gluesticks and kept it simple with my directions.

They loved to get to choose their own colors for the snail and absolutely loooveed to use their gluesticks and glue it all together, add the googly eyes and see it wobble!

Pre-cut (or cut with your child) 5 different pieces of paperstrips, all different lengths. Curl them one by one and glue to connnect to make a circle. Do this with each paperstrip. Then glue each circle into the other, starting from largest circle. After, cut a long strip of paper (about 8 inches), creating little antennas towards the top, slightly curl the whole paperstrip. Peel and stick the two googly eyes, with the permanent marker draw the mouth, nose and eye lashes. You may want to help your child in this step. Lastly, glue your curled/glued 5 pieces of paper onto the snail base. That’s it, watch it wobble back and forth!
