Seashell crafts and activities fill my heart with joy! We recently spent a weekend at the beach in Picardie, and came back, as we always do, with handfuls of shells we had collected from our beach adventures. We found shells of all different shapes, sizes and colors and I can’t wait to use them in upcoming projects.
I jumped on Pinterest for some inspiration and began adding Pins to my Pinterest boards which are full of awesome learning ideas for the kids at Le Chemin ABA. I am so inspired every time I connect to Pinterest and see all of the fabulous projects and crafts that have been created by fellow bloggers. I collect pins in a variety of categories for the kids : Spring activities, paper crafts, sensory box ideas, family recipes, the list goes on and on… I would love for you to follow me on Pinterest to stay up-to-date on all of this fabulous information!
I found some great ideas for seashell crafts and activities that you can do with your little one after your next trip to the beach.
What better way to remember gorgeous family trips than to bring your seashell souvenirs home for projects?!
1. Print bed sheets (or any other fabric) with seashells by Fine Craft Guild.
You will need white sheets, fabric paint, a foam paintbrush and your favorite selection of shells.
2. Shells and playdough snails from Mother Natured.
This project could not be any simpler. All you need is a lovely shell and some playdough. Shape your playdough into a snail and voilà, you’re all set! 🙂
3. Shell sensory bottle from Rhythms of Play.
You’ll need to collect a few more materials for this project. In addition to seashells, you need a water bottle (the author of this project recommends an empty VOSS water bottle), goo gone, water, blue food coloring or liquid water color paint, liquid handsoap and gorilla super glue. (Check out the link and the original project directions for all of the fabulous details – thank you, Rhythms of Play!)
I would love to hear from you! What do you think of these seashell crafts and activities? Do you have others to add to the list?
