8. Inflate the brown balloon, but only a little. Tie a knot. The balloon will represent your snail's head.

9. Push the knotted end of the balloon inside the hole. Paint the cotton swab with black paint and set it aside until the paint is completely dry. Cut the cotton swab in two and glue both pieces behind the snail's head to represent antennae. Finally, use the black marker to draw eyes and a nose.
