We have bins & bins of crafting supplies in our house. There are some days that my daughter likes to pull out all the pom poms, craft sticks & pipe cleaners and just play with them. A couple of night ago she pulled out mini cupcake liners & said “Mama, I want to make sea shells. I want to put googly eyes on them & make them mouths with the pipe cleaners.” OK! I showed her how to make sea shells out of cupcake liners a little while back & she remembered, but she wanted to make them again with happy faces.
I am always excited when she initiates a craft. She helped me gather all of the supplies & we got to work.
Fold a liner in half to form the top half of your shell & then fold into fourths for the bottom portion. Glue into place.
Glue on googly eyes & cut sections of pipe cleaner for the smile.
We cut a bucket out of construction paper & glued it to a piece of paper & colored in our backdrop in crayon. Mai made two sea shells & put them side by side. “Mama, look they are getting married. My shell needs a dress.”
Those two do make a cute couple.
I made some happy shells too.
Thank you as always for stopping by. Please follow us on Facebook as well.
Love those happy seashells and perfect summer time craft at its finest!! 🙂
Thank you, Janine. That was all her idea. So cute.
