Cockleshell Critters
Total Time 1 to 2 hours Ages school-age

Perched on their driftwood stand, these salty characters really dress up a child's night table or desktop.

What you'll need

  • Clean shells
  • Tacky glue
  • White pony beads
  • Permanent black marker
  • Piece of driftwood

How to make it

  1. For each critter, select 2 shells of like size and shape. Set one top-side down and glue a pair of bead eyes to the edge opposite the hinge.

  2. Then glue the other shell in place atop the first one, as shown. When the glue is dry, draw pupils on the eyes.

  3. Finally, arrange your clam critters atop the driftwood and glue them in place.
