Oh Shell

shell side

So we went to the Outer Banks last year and loved it! We spent at least part of each day at the beach, playing in the ocean, picking up shells, watching the waves, the sun and wild life.  It was a great time spent as a family. The only problem we had, was what to do with ALL those shells?!?

I had shells, my kids had shells, my husband had shells, shells everywhere! So with some of Sweet Pea’s shells this is what we did.shell mirror

All we did was take an old mirror and hot glued the shells to it. We had fun and very few burns, but the ice pack was always handy!
