Cute Clam Critters

I found this cute little craft online and thought it was a great way to use up some of those seashells from vacation.
  • Clean shells
  • Tacky glue
  • White pony beads
  • Permanent black marker
  • Piece of driftwood
  1. For each critter, select 2 shells of like size and shape. Set one top-side down and glue a pair of bead eyes to the edge opposite the hinge.
  2. Then glue the other shell in place atop the first one, as shown. When the glue is dry, draw pupils on the eyes.
  3. Finally, arrange your clam critters atop the driftwood and glue them in place.

We had a great time at the shore. The kids looked at avery seashell and tried to match them up with what was in the book. They had a great time.
