Sea shell creatures

Wondering what to do with the shells you collected at the beach this summer?  Here is a cute idea.  Take one shell and glue it to a piece of wood.  Add eyes which you can make from tiny marshmallows or can buy at a craft store.  Glue another shell to the first shell to make seashell creatures! If the kids want, they can paint the shells first to make colorful creatures!

Here is a cute craft idea to do with the kids this summer.  Cut a paper plate in half and paint it into a watermelon.  You can use just paint to make the watermelon, or, you can use actual watermelon seeds.  To do this, make sure the red paint is pretty thick and the kids can put the seeds right onto the paint- no glue needed.  Once the paint dries, the seeds will stay on the paper!
