Fun summer crafts are yours for the making. Stroll along the beach with your kids and collect the coolest sea shells you can find. String them together using fishing line and you've got yourselves a neat summer craft for kids.
Follow our simple instructions here at easy-child-crafts.com, add your own measure of imagination, and you'll be amazed at how creative you and your kids can be.
Hope you enjoy this easy craft idea! And thanks to Amit for submitting her own creation!
Let's see what you'll need to make this craft:
Nylon fishing line (available at craft stores)
Wooden skewer, small branch, or wooden dowel
Colored beads (optional)
1. Use shells that have a natural hole in them.
2. String the fishing line through the hole.
3. Tie knots at preferred intervals to create space between shells.
4. Add colored beads as desired (ours are made of salt dough--get your recipe onsite!)
5. Tie strings to wooden skewer and hang!
That's it! You've made your first (of many, we hope) sea shell mobile!
