Sea Shell Craft – Puppets, Bags & Fairy Cups

If you’ve been lucky over the Summer holidays you may have managed a trip to the Sea Side.

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.
