One mother sharing her knowledge with others.

Start Collecting Shells

There’s been an influx of Spring Breakers here this past week reminding me of years past when I was desperately trying to come up with ideas to keep our children occupied with fun activities.

If you happen to be on spring break now (or heading off soon) and have escaped to a beach destination, send the children off in search of sea shells like the ones pictured below.

Later this month, I’ll be sharing a post on how to make Sea Shell Angels with those shells once you get back home. After all… it’s never too soon to start filling that Christmas gift box with treasures your children have made for their friends and family.


Note: You’ll also need to buy a string of 3/8″ pearl beads for the heads and a yard or two of 1/8″ ribbon for hanging.
