Snail Craft

Sharing is caring!

If you’re looking for ideas on how to make a paper snail craft with preschoolers, kindergartners or older kids, this one is super easy. It comes with a simple template, with big patterns that are great for little hands.

After creating the color and craft insects, I wanted to make a snail craft because the one in the insect bundle looked do cute. The snail on mushroom craft is another version of that original snail.

You will only need two cardstock paper sheets to make this snail, one brown for the shell and the other green for the foot. Print the patterns, cut them out and glue them together. That’s all. Nice and easy, like the rest of our 200+ crafts for kids.

Our snail template contains a snail coloring page, too.
