Sometimes the most wonderful crafts come from very unexpected places! Daisy was tidying up her art studio when a very slow moving friend crept past her window. This inspired her to use the newspaper she found to make PAPER SNAILS.
“Some move fast
some are slow
& slimy guys,
they live outdoors
but they sneak inside...
Bugs and Slugs”

MAKE A PAPER SNAIL WITH DAISY!
Tear a page from an old newspaper and fold it lengthwise into thin strips. No need to rush. Slow and steady wins the race!
Roll the paper strips into a spiral then tape it into place.
Paint your snails any colour you would like. When the paint dries you can add a face to your little snail friend. Use googly eyes and two little twigs to make some antenna. These paper snails can be placed on a bookshelf to remind you to slow down and enjoy the moment.
Remember there is no right or wrong way to make a nature craft, so have fun!
