Feeding kids … Orange snails

I’ve often seen images on Pintrest and Facebook where people have creatively peeled oranges to form people shapes or animals.

I thought I would give it a try and make Hamish an orange snail.

It wasn’t as hard as I first anticipated and now that I’ve created this mini orange masterpiece I’m tempted to try a harder animal.

To make your own you need:

  • An orange
  • Knife
  • Marker
  • Lavender
  • Tape


I first started by drawing the snails head with marker.

Then cutting the skin away to reveal the flesh, which would become the shell.

Lastly I drew on a face.

To decorate I taped two pieces of lavender on a feelers and placed the snail on a plate surounded by lavender “grass”

Hamish was super impressed with his slithery snail
