Tissue Paper Snail
We have spent a lot of time out and about looking at various 'mini beasts' in our outdoor environment so I thought it would be fun to turn it into a sticking activity.
I presented the children with a piece of paper shaped like a snail shell and the snail body. They used the squeeze glue to cover their snail and then set to work with the different colours of tissue paper to create their colourful snails. When they had finished the children then placed some googly eyes and some antennae made of pipe cleaners on their snails.
This activity was really good for enhancing fine motor skills and we talked about how the snails move around outdoors as well as what they eat and where they live.
