We are a family with three 'wee winkles' exploring the pleasures and perils of educating at home using Scripture, Montessori and a lot of love!

Our look at Matisse's 'Snail Trail' created a love in Lamb....snails. We have spent quite a bit of time in the garden watching them move around (you know that means poking their antennae and watching them come back out again)
So we got a couple of books out from the library.
Did some colouring in.
And baked some scrolls for snails.
Cherry rolling out the dough
We filled our scrolls with caramel sauce and walnuts, rolled it up then Lamb cut the roll into pieces. He felt very important being allowed to use the sharp knife. You might be able to tell from the look on his face!
Et voila!
Snails. Yum!

  1. I love this idea!! I've been searching for ideas for some mini-units I want to set up for Sweetpea for when our new baby arrives in September, and since SNAILS are also a favourite of my almost two year old son, I am sure that it will be a hit around here. LOVE doing something food related with our themes, and this is super cute, thanks for sharing!
