bawk, bawk, squawk!

bawk! squack!

I’ve got some chicken art up over at Alpha+Mom today. Just kidding, it’s sea shell art that happens to look like a chicken or a bird or a duck or something. What’s great about this craft is that kids LOVE painting shells! I did not know this. But you should try it if you need a few hours of quiet on these long, boring, hot, summer afternoons. Hours and hours, I tell you. If you water down your paint enough, it’s not that messy either!

painting shells is a hit



    This is great – I’m going to have to squirrel this idea away for future use!!
    Ps – love the new blog header – another great one!

    Can you hear me sniffing from way over here? Because I don’t live close to a beach, my seashells are precious and I wouldn’t think of painting them, oh no. Maybe I could buys some cheap ones at the dollar store?
