Snails Have One Foot


  • small square of black or brown construction paper
  • liquid glue and small containers for the glue
  • snail clip art
  • glitter
  • aluminum pans

Background Information

Snails have one foot. They move along on their foot by creating a snail trail of slippery slime. When the slime dries, it sparkles.


The children glue a cut out snail on the right side of their paper.

Let them dip a finger into the glue and make a snail trail behind their cut out.

Put the picture into an aluminum pan and let the children sprinkle the trail with glitter.
