How to make your paper snail?

Making paper snail

First, have your little one color in the snail and the leaf on the template. Encourage them to get creative. Use different colors, draw patterns, come up with ornaments. The snail doesn’t have to be realistic, let your child put their imagination to work.


Then, cut out the snail and the leaf. If your child is very young, do this for them. If they’re getting familiar with scissors, encourage them to try and cut along the lines. It’s OK if it’s not perfect, make sure they know that.


Finally, fold the snail along the dashed lines. This will form the base of the snail. Then roll the end of the paper inwards from the end towards the snail’s head. Stop at the first dashed line. Rolling the paper will form the spiral shell.


Place the snail on the leaf. If you want, you can glue it in place. And voila, your happy snail is done.


Now go and make a second one. These are too cute to make just one.
