Hello, I wonder if other people are like me and after enjoying pleasurably beach combing on holiday you return home and wonder what to do with the piles of shells? William has also got into beach combing and this year we had a large pile of shells. These are a couple of ideas to do with them which will happily occupy you and your little one for at least an hour.
|Here's our pile of shells|
First we just laid them out and looked at them - sorting and organizing looking at colour and shapes.
Then William wanted to make a picture with them.

|The look of concentration|
|Arrangement 1. All the holey shells|
|Arrangement 2 four of my favorites|
|The finished piece|
Note: please make sure that it is O.K. to beach comb as some places do not allow you to remove the shells.
