Your kids will totally use their imagination to have their curiosity sparked with the world around them.

 I live on an island now and all my nieces and nephews collect a seashell for me whenever they go to the beach. I decorate my office with them. They love to pick one for me and I love to have a gift from them with me every day.

I have so many seashells in my office that it inspired me to look for some arts and crafts to use with them. This one seems super fun and cute. Our kids will have a hoot making seashell self-portraits.

All you need is:

  • Seashells
  • Sand
  • Other natural found objects on the beach
  • Bucket
  • Crayola Model Magic or Air Dry Clay
  • Mirror (optional)

Make a Self-Portrait with Seashells and Model Magic in this creative Seashell Self-Portrait Art Project for kids from Fantastic Fun and Learning.
