What better way to use up shells collected for adventures to the beach than by making these gorgeous and very simple Sea Shell Puppets.
Sea Shell Puppets
Materials – Lolly sticks, googly eyes, shells and tacky pva (white) glue
Get your children to lay the shells out on the lolly stick choosing what they want as a head and body.
Use a liberal amount of glue to glue the shells on.
Add some googly eyes and wait to fully dry.
Sea Shell Handbag
Materials – Sea shells, string and tacky pva (white) glue
There’s something wonderfully tactile and calming about sea shells. They invite you to pick them up and play with them which is why I like to try to keep them as natural as they can be when using them in crafts with my children.
These shell ideas were part of a shell craft hangout I did with some other great craft bloggers. Watch the video below and use the links to find out their fab shell craft suggestions.
