Shell Pets

If you haven't noticed by the ridiculous heat, it is officially summer.  So what better way to spend your days than to make some fun summer crafts with the kids.  Most of these items can be found (if you are lucky enough to go to a beach this summer), otherwise you can get them at your local craft store.  Once again, this great craft idea comes from Disney's Family Fun website.
  • Clean shells
  • Tacky glue
  • White pony beads
  • Permanent black marker
  • Piece of driftwood
  1. For each critter, select 2 shells of like size and shape. Set one top-side down and glue a pair of bead eyes to the edge opposite the hinge.
  2. Then glue the other shell in place atop the first one, as shown. When the glue is dry, draw pupils on the eyes.
  3. Finally, arrange your clam critters atop the driftwood and glue them in place.
