Tissue Paper Snail Craft - Cultivate Behavioral Health & Education - ABA Therapy Sensory Crafts


  • Tissue Paper (cut into 1 ½ inch squares)
  • White Glue
  • Pencil
  • Markers
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • Wiggly Eyes
  • 1 Pipe Cleaner
  • Snail Printable


After gathering supplies, invite kids to color the snail’s body. We chose to use a grey marker, but any bright color would be a great choice.

Next, cut out the snail’s body and shell with scissors. Tape or glue the snail’s shell to the top of the body.

Glue 2 wiggly eyes to the snail’s face, then draw a smile on the snail’s face with a black marker.

Press a piece of tissue paper around the eraser end of a pencil, squeeze a drop of glue on top of it, then press it to the snail’s shell.

If you are making this craft with a large group of kids who are sharing supplies, pour glue onto paper plates so they can simply dip their tissue paper into the glue instead. Repeat until entire circle is covered.
