We just love paper crafts, they’re often simple and inexpensive and this cute paper snail craft didn’t disappoint! my snail obsessed son had so much fun making and playing with his own paper snails – they also look fab in his room too!

Here’s what we used

  • Coloured paper/card
  • Sticker eyes
  • Scissors
  • Glue

How to make this cute paper snail craft

Take the coloured card that you be using to make the snails shell and cut out a strip from each. The strips should be equal width but varying lengths, each of ours were 2cm apart in length to give us strips of 12cm, 14cm, 16cm and 18cm.

Take the strips and glue them together at one end…

Then glue the other ends of the strips together to make a rainbow like shape.

Take the two ends and glue them together to create the circular shell.

Next take the card that you will be using to make the body of the snail. Cut out a strip the same width as the shell strips. Round off one end with Scissors to make the snails tail and then cut two little stalks on the other end, before attaching an eye to each stalk.



Fold a small section near the eyes to make the head. Finish off your cute paper snail by gluing the snails shell onto the body, aren’t these just the cutest!
