A Lunchbox Full of Snails

Small Child was very excited that his classroom got some new pets last week - 3 giant snails!  I was in the classroom when the children were coming up with names for them, so I thought it would be fun to make a snail lunch to celebrate the new arrivals.

In his snail lunch Small Child had 2 small homemade pizza whirl rolls, decorated with polka-dot food picks to make them look more like snails, a couple of rolled up ham ‘snails’, held together with more polka-dot food picks, which also helped to add to their snail-like appearance.  On the side he had some cucumber slices, with a swirl carved into them with the tip of a sharp knife, and a clementine snail.

I’ve been meaning to try my hand at the clementine snail for some time, after spotting it on Pinterest.  It was very easy to do, and I was pleased with my attempt.  Here’s a close-up of my snail, the face was drawn on with a biro, as the peel was obviously to be discarded, rather than eaten.

Small Child was very excited about his snail lunch, and ate everything up.  He told me some of the girls thought snails for lunch were yucky, I’m glad he didn’t listen!
