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!
