It's Playtime: Slimy Creatures

Every day in my house, we have bugs.  We have beetles, pincher bugs, rollie pollies, and of course, snails. This week on It's Playtime: a tribute to the slimy creatures that capture our children's curiosity.

Our snails would love this beautiful Snail Garden created at StrongStart.  I love how the kids helped in the designing as well as the creation.  Perfect for preschool, homeschool, or just for fun!

Primary Learning Log has put together an entire theme (preschool, homeschool, etc) surrounding Worms.  Check it out for great ideas for art, sensory, math, and much more.  Who doesn't love worms?  

If you were featured this week, don't forget to grab your special "featured button." 

These activities plus more can be found over on the It's Playtime Pinterest Board.  Happy Pinning!

  1. If you are looking for more fun with snails check out my snail posts- We did a TON of super fun activities all centered around snails!

  2. The snail garden looks totally awesome! I had never heard of one before, and it's such a great idea!

    1. I love that too! I wish I had garden snails. We have these other snails that are smaller who apparently eat garden snails. They aren't as cool.
