I love the idea of using bright, colorful fruit to recreate some of the beautiful scenes we see in nature. Although snail shells are not known to be this bright, the two colors I used contrast themselves to show the beautiful pattern that these shells naturally have.
Slice a banana in half lengthwise to make the snail’s body. Place a ground of oatmeal beneath him.
Add a raisin eye and a sliced blueberry for a mouth. Use a tiny bit of the other half of the banana for some antennae.
For the shell, use contrasting fruits like raspberries and grapes to form a swirly shell look as shown above.
This one is great to make after reading a book like this:
