Sand, sun, and saltwater - three things that remind us of summer! If you're looking for a cutesy beach-inspired craft to do with your kiddos this summer, we think these simple shell clams from Family Fun would be a hit!

Supplies You'll Need

  • Seashells
  • White craft glue
  • White pony beads and black permanent marker or wiggle eyes

Add these critters to a piece of driftwood, have your kiddos create an an under-the-sea scene using a piece of sandpaper, use the shell critters to complete a beach-scape bulletin board, use magnet circles or strips to create classroom/fridge magnets, or find another fun use for these beach-inspired crafts!

For the full project tutorial, be sure to visit Family Fun!
