This paper plate sea shell is a great summer craft. It can be used for any ocean or beach theme activity, or even just a great summer decoration to hang around the house! To complete this activity, you will need:
A single hole puncher
First, grab your paper plate and draw an outline of a sea shell for you or your child to cut out. Next, cut out the areas you outlined. After the outlines have been cut, then you can grab paints of your child’s choice. Once the paint colors have been chosen, have your child use the sponge brush to paint the sea shell. For a more sparkling sea shell, add glitter to the wet paint. Let the paint dry before moving onto the next steps. Once the paint has dried, use the single hole puncher to create four holes on the bottom and top of the plate. Grab some yarn and have your child lace it through a hole at the top to a hole at the bottom. Repeat this step till all the holes are filled with yarn. Then tie the ends of the yarn together and cut it as needed.
