Bugs and my boy seem to go hand and hand. Together we made a cute little snail that even I don't mind holding.

How We Did It

Snail Friend
We took a little walk to collect the perfect sticks for our little snail friends to rest on.

When we returned the kids quickly got to work making their snails. They started out by rolling a piece of clay into a snake shape.

Next, they rolled each snake up to create a snail shell form, leaving the end out to become the snails head.

Two little snips of pipe cleaner made the perfect antenna. This clay is really easy for little hands to work with and add accessories, too.

We used tacky glue to add eyes and position our snail on the stick. The kids noticed that the glue looked like snail slime!

Eventually they decided to paint the shell with some watercolor paints, but it wasn't necessary. Our snail was adorable either way.

A boy and his snail. Just too adorable to take!
