Summer fun Craft made out of SeaShell

Hi everyone,
Summer is almost here!!!! I know a lot of people go to the beach for Summer vacation. When you go to the beach do you look for Sea Shells? What do you do with them when you get home? I collect Shells and have tons just sitting in a bucket. If you are like me and just have them Bucket somewhere....I have the Perfect Kids Craft for you.
Why not make SeaShell Kola's out of them?
Awesome Craft for kids.. Found On Martha

Koala How-To
1. Experiment with different combinations to come up with animal shapes before gluing everything into place. We chose small scallop and clam shells for the koalas, and long razor clams decorated with ring-top cowries for the tree.

2. Use small cushions of polymer clay, which is pliable and slightly sticky, to test out various arrangements. For assembly, a tacky, quick-drying glue works best. Build heads and bodies separately. Before joining larger parts, use a brush to glue on small parts (such as beads for eyes) and clay to support creatures while glue dries.

If you don't have shells and are wanting to make this craft. You can go to your local craft store and buy a basket of seashells but that kinda takes the fun out of finding them on then beach yourself and making a Kola out the shell you and your kiddos kind.
Have Fun and Enjoy!!!
