Have you returned from vacation with a bucket full of sea shells? Let the kids turn them into a fun Sea Shell Sea Creature Canvas Craft. This post is sponsored by Hefty® Ultra Strong™ trash bags, who helped me clean up our crafty mess.
We recently returned from a fun beach trip. The triplets collected sea shells, and we came back with a bucket full of assorted sea shells. A few years ago, after a similar trip, my daughter used the shells to paint, put wiggly eyes on, and create different sea shell fish and sea creatures. This week, the boys were missing the ocean and the sand one day, and I decided to help them recreate the craft but place them on a canvas as a decor keepsake. As an extra, since we have also been working on chores this summer, they helped clean up the trash with the Hefty® bags that handle all of our crafty, messy needs.
- Sea shells- The shells can any size or shape. Since we are making creatures, any shape shell will work.
- Assorted color paint
- Glitter glue
- Adhesive wiggly eyes
- Small canvas
- ADULT USE ONLY: Hot glue gun and hot glue
Use blue paint to cover the canvas. The child can cover it completely or partially. Let the paint dry thoroughly.
Paint the shells in assorted colors. Let the paint dry completely.
THIS STEP IS FOR ADULTS ONLY. Use the hot glue gun to attach the shells to the canvas.
Adhere the wiggly eyes to the shells.
Apply the glitter glue to the canvas.
Use green paint to make “seaweed.” Use other paints or shells to add more to the canvas, as desired.
