French Snail Petit Escargot Craft

Craft time in French with your toddler: Autumn PlayDoh Snails

Here is a simple autumn craft you can relate back to your French classes! Make a cute snail with a conker and plasticine or PlayDoh, sing the song “Petit Escargot” and explore the meaning of the song together 🙂

Children are kinaesthetic learners so singing and making together is a fab way to learn.

Petit escargot,

Porte sur son dos,

Sa maisonette,

Aussitôt qu’il pleut.

Il est tout heureux,

Il sort sa tête !

Little snail,

Carries on his back,

His wee house,

As soon as it rains,

He is all happy,

He pops out his head!
