I hope you are having wonderful holidays! 🙂
Today, I am showing you three simple crafts related with the story Sharing a Shell by Julia Donaldson.
From my point of view it is a very good story to do in summer, so let’s get started!
Recomendations: It is a very simple activity, and perfect for little children. I recommend you to use as much glitter as you can! They love it, and the final result is really good!
- Some shells
The idea of this activity is to decorate shells. There are many options and many different techniques to do it! Here you can see some of them!
Firstly paint the shells as you like using shinny colours. You can also add some glitter, decorations or adhesive eyes to make it funnier!
DECORATING A CANDLE
Recommendations: To do this craft, you would need some hot glue, so take care with it! It is important to take into account that the shells and decorations should be added at the bottom part of the candle. If you do it on the top, the shells are going to fall because of the heat.
- a candle
- some shells
- some wool or thin rope
- hot glue
To do this simple and beautiful craft, you can use different materials. Firstly, paste the wool or the rope on the candle. You can use some hot glue to paste it. Finally add the shells as you want.
DECORATING A KEY CHAIN
Recomendations: To do this craft, I recommend you to use bigger shells.
- Hot glue
- A key chain
The last activity is very simple, but in my opinion is the best. It is easy to do and the result is amazing. To start, paste the wool on the shell with some hot glue. Later add the wool on the key chain. You can add as many shells as you can!
