After a week at the beach, we’ve come home with treasures galore to turn into crafts! Some of our best clam shells were the perfect base for making these little “friends”, and now they are a fantastic reminder of the summer fun we had at the shore.
Start with any relatively flat, whole shell as your base – clams worked great, but we tried a mussel shell that we’d found as well.
After a week away, Travis couldn’t wait to get his hands into our craft bin, meaning this was a before-breakfast undertaking!
Use anything in your craft box to make silly, friendly faces on the shells – I thought pipe cleaners or ribbon would make great smiles, but Travis had more fun adding mouths in sparkly glitter glue and paint.
Pom poms made adorable noses, and googly eyes were the perfect finishing touch.
