Minibeast Fingerprint Snail Craft: Tutorial

Step 1:

Download and print the Snail Template onto white card stock.

Step 2:

Add fingerprints!

Less is More… For clean and crisp prints, avoid applying an excess of paint to the finger tip. With every new application, print onto a scrap piece of paper before printing the snails shell.

Use the same application of paint until the print fades.

Don’t be afraid to overlap the prints and combine colours!

Step 3:

While the snail shell dries, cut out the body and trace around the shape onto a piece of coloured card.

Alternatively, the template can be coloured in.

Add a pair of googley eyes and a big smile!
