This is based on an idea found in an issue of FamilyFun Magazine. Seashells make wonderful palm-size canvases for seascape paintings.
What You Need:
- Seashells (large chalky, white shells)
- Jar or water.
- Watercolour or tempera paints & small brushes.
What You Do:
- Rinse the shells clean and let dry.
- Paint tiny pictures on the inside of the shell. Fish, water, sunsets, palm trees ... anything you want.
- You could create a number of shell paintings and display them around the edge of a frame, or you could glue them to a terra cotta pot. The possibilities are endless.
- If you live near the water, you could make a field trip out of this activity and take the opportunity to discuss the sea and the animals who live there.
