You let your child collect shells for nine days while you are on vacation.
Then you come home with several bags of teeny-tiny seashells. What do you do with them?
Today, Sam and I decided to turn the seashells into a picture frame that Sam will give to Avery for Christmas.
Simple wood picture frame, hot glue and small seashells.
Sam was hesitant about using the hot glue gun so she asked me to do the glueing and she would place the shells.
Sam helped me pick out a picture to print to put in the frame of the two of them on the boat in Cabo. She is so excited to wrap it up and then give it to Avery on Christmas morning.
I love the idea of having the girls make presents for each other.
Are your kiddos getting crafty this year?
The Nitty Gritty!
This was a great way to use the shells that Sam was so proud of and had such fun collecting. I was a little nervous that she wouldn't want to give them up to make something that would be for her sister but so far she is only excited about the idea. She hasn't mentioned once being sad or angry about giving the shells away.
What do you do with your kiddos collections? Do they form serious attachments to them that are hard to sever?
