What colours will you choose for this slimy snail’s shell?

Grab your pens and pencils and get colouring! Does he have a rainbow shell, or is he camouflaged?

  • Snails hibernate, and you won’t spot them in winter unless the temperature is above 5°C
  • The garden snail’s Latin name is Cornu aspersum
  • Try using different bits of fabric or paper to create your snail

Add leaves and grass to your picture to give your snail a home and some tasty food to eat. Have you spotted any snails in your garden?
