Crafting with items that you already have on hand is always the best way to reuse materials and save money. Save those brown paper grocery bags and turn them into these colorful and cute snails for your spring garden or classroom!
Stick Snail Craft For Kids

The first step is finding the right kind of twig for your snail craft. We tried to find one that was straight and then split off into two pieces at one end so that it looked like antennas.
After you find your twigs you can start on the shell. Grab your brown paper bag and crumble it up, then fold it lengthwise. You should have one long piece of paper, you’ll then take one end of that and roll it up to form the shell. As you roll it, you’ll have to add in some glue to the inside to keep it together.
Then you can paint the shells with whatever colors you’d like! We picked out some bright Spring colors for ours.
Finally, attach the shell to your stick. For this step, we found that our low-temperature glue gun worked better than our school glue.
