Kids gather enough stuff from the beach to start their own beach--or maybe a whole new continent! This keepsake aquarium is a lovely, simple way for them to display the cream of their collections

What you'll need

  • Large glass fishbowl
  • Family beach-day photo
  • Clear tape
  • Sand, enough to fill the fishbowl about halfway
  • Pebbles, shells, driftwood, dried seaweed, sea glass, and other beach treasures
  • Small nautical image cut from a postcard or calendar
  • Wooden skewer

How to make it

  1. Tape the family photo to the inside of the fishbowl, being sure to tape along all the edges to help keep out the sand.

  2. Fill the fishbowl about halfway with sand, enough to reach above the photo.

  3. . Spread pebbles on the sand, then place shells, driftwood, and other beach treasures where you like.

  4. Cut out a small nautical image from a postcard or calendar. Tape a wooden skewer to the back and push the skewer into the sand. You may have to trim the skewer with scissors to make the image rest on the beach.
