15 Garden Crafts for Kids
Written by Jen Betterley
After discovering how much her children love to collect snails in the yard, Mom Anna of the crafty cool blog Lilla A and her kids came up with this neat idea for having colorful snail races.
To get started, Anna's little ones simply dipped the snails into dabs of various food coloring and set them on a large white sheet of paper for cruisin'. Anna says that it was fun to see the gorgeous bright patterns that emerged throughout the day as the snails made their cross-canvas journey. Be sure to check out the full post for more great photos of the project!
Note: Anna says that no snails were harmed during this activity and that the food coloring on their bodies came off easily as they slid along. However, all-natural food colorings are also available.
