If you live down by the sea shore, like we do, your kids are bound to leave the beach with at least one backpack full of clam shells each visit. As our pile continues to grow, week by week, I’m often desperate for new ways to use them up.
So, after my husband and the kids painted me my very own “Mother’s Day Clam Shells” – I swiped his idea and made some Clam Shell Friends with the kiddos this afternoon. It is a fairly easy craft to do, especially with younger kids – all you need is an abundance of clam shells, some paint, a package of googley eyes, and some spray varnish!
KIDS CRAFT: CLAM SHELL FRIENDS
- Clam Shells
- Googley Eyes
- Spray Varnish (I use washable paints – so the varnish is necessary to keep the colors on the shells!)
Step 1: Wash and dry your clam shells. Paint; allow to air dry.
Step 2: Once paint is completely dry, have an adult spray varnish over them to keep the paint from washing off.
Step 3: Once varnish is dry, glue on googley eyes.
