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
- 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.
- Then glue the other shell in place atop the first one, as shown. When the glue is dry, draw pupils on the eyes.
- 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.
