Puddle Ducks and Strange Snail

Find out more about the Strange Snail Discovery Boxes

Strange Snail provide arts and crafts boxes delivery to your door to help keep your little ones busy. The company was set up in 2015 by Puddle Ducks customers Ali and Verity, and this is their story:

"One snowy January back in 2010 we started baby swimming classes with our three month olds. From Floaties, through Kickers, Splashers and Dippers, our weekly swimming meet-ups helped us forge a strong friendship.

All the Puddle Ducks teachers were so friendly and the bath-like temperature of the water at Parson Street pool was very inviting (although it did make the changing rooms feel cold!). From the welcoming starter song “Welcome everyone to Puddle Ducks…” to seahorse races and ‘jelly on a plate’ our children thoroughly enjoyed the lessons and picked up life-saving skills without even realising they were learning.

Outside of swimming we both love making things with our children. We realised the educational value of different craft activities that enable children to develop new skills and boost their confidence while having a lot of fun. Using Ali’s experience of being a primary school teacher and Verity’s passion for wildlife conservation and environmental education we joined forces to create Strange Snail.

Strange Snail produces arts and crafts discovery boxes for children aged 4 to 8 years old. The boxes contain illustrated instructions and all the materials you need for creative, fun and educational activities. Each month we explore a new theme, such as Endangered Animals, Planets & Stars and The Romans to name a few. The boxes make great gifts and are available individually or as a monthly subscription."
