DIY PAPER SNAIL TOY. I love to make moving drawings; already as a kid, I amused myself with moving my illustrations around and making small scenes. I love it that my illustrations can come quickly alive, the small stories that you can create around them and adding on easily some personalities.

I had created this small cute DIY paper snail toy. I posted a short video of it on Instagram, and people loved it! Which is like super cool, I got a lot of questions about how I made it, and I decided to create a DIY from it.

This workshop is great for kids about nine years old. Therefore the younger kids can still make them, but I think they need some help.
