Link Texts and Other Activities
•Just like the snail in the story left a message in a trail of slime, with an adult, leave a message on a path, in your garden or on an outside wall! Paintbrushes dipped in water can leave the best messages and will look like slime - though will disappear quickly!
•Try to go out on a walk after it has been raining. Turn snail detectives and look out for any snail trails!
