Snail Art

Today we want to share a super fun and creative project to do with kids (or yourself. I mean, who says you have to be a kid to enjoy all the cool things they get to do?!) :)

Snail Art! How fun! This idea is from one of our good friends, Jamie.
Not Jaime as in Everyday Art Jaime, but Jamie amazing-sewer Jamie (huge distinction in that department)!

Well not only is she good behind a sewing machine, but apparently she does way-cool things with her kids too. :)
Want to make some Snail Art of your own? It's easy.  
Alls you need is some paper, some food dye (the liquidy kind) and, obviously, some snails.
Put some dye on the paper, then put the snails on top of the dye and watch them crawl around and make patterns as they pull the dye with them. Easy peasy but big wow factor.

Here are some of Jamie's pictures of their project:

Fun! Must-try for sure. Especially before the cold weather sets in....

Have a creative day!

Here's where we are linking up.


  1. Er...It sounds like an awesome idea, but snails kind of gross me out. Lol, I think I might keep this awesome idea a secret from my children when they are old enough.:)

  2. That is a unique idea, my 5 year old would be really into it.

  3. Too bad we don't have snails like that where I live. My kids would love to do this! Way cool!


It is always fun to hear from our readers. Thanks for stopping by!
