Minibeast Fingerprint Snail Craft: Tutorial
Download and print the Snail Template onto white card stock.
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!
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!
Once the shell has dried, cut it out.
Glue the shell to the body of the snail.
The Minibeast Fingerprint Snail Craft is complete!
How will your Arty Crafty Kids paint theirs?
