If you live near the water, you could make a field trip out of this activity collect hand/bucket full of shells with varied sizes and take the opportunity to discuss the sea and the animals who live there.

Material required

Seashells (large chalky, white shells)

Jar or water.

Watercolour or tempera paints /acrylic medium.

small brushes.

Step 1

Rinse the shells clean and let dry.

Step 2

Paint tiny pictures on the inside of the shell. Fish, water, sunsets, palm trees ... anything you want. Can do stunning artwork over the Gastro-pod shells.

You could create a number of shell paintings and display them around the edge of a frame, or you could glue them to a terra cotta pot. The possibilities are endless.
