Cotton Ball Painted Snail Paper Plate Craft
This is what you need to make a Cotton Ball Painted Snail Paper Plate Craft:
- Paper plate
- Craft paints
- Cotton balls
- Googly eye
- Fuzzy stick
To make the snail , start cutting the paper plate from the outside, in a continuous circle until you reach the middle. This will create a spiral shape. Trim the edge and round the snail “head”.
Glue a googly eye into place, twist the fuzzy stick into a snail antenna shape and glue to the back of the paper plate.
Use the clothespin to pick up the cotton balls, dip them into various paint colors and dab all over the snail body.
Draw a smile, let dry and you have a cute snail! Just be sure to keep him out of the garden!
