Arts & Crafts: Make a Seashell with Us!

We’re continuing our exploration of the beach by showing you how to make your own seashell with us!
Creative Clubhouse KIDS

What You’ll Need

  • A Paper Plate
  • Pipe Cleaners
    If you don’t have pipe cleaners, you can use strips of paper or yarn
  • Crayons
  • A Pencil
  • Safety Scissors
  • Tape
    If you don’t have tape, you can also use craft glue

This project requires cutting a few times. If you do not have safety scissors, make sure a grownup is helping you cut! 

What To Do

  1. Outline the shape of your seashell using your pencil
  2. Use your safety scissors to cut your seashell out of the paper plate.
    If you do not have safety scissors, make sure a grownup helps you!
  3. Color in your seashell! We chose purple, blue, and silver but you can choose any colors you’d like!
  4. Cut your pipe cleaners in half.
    If you do not have safety scissors, make sure a grownup helps you!
  5. Tape your pipe cleaners onto your seashells. 

And now you have a Seashell!
