To quote my niece, Oona, from a previous post about Sylvan Beach, “What we are going to do is making crafts out of the shells, like necklaces, and like paper and shells art, and coloring the shells on the paper with the shells.” She elaborated on this brilliant idea a few days later. She insisted that we make paper plate shell Frisbees, and she brilliantly decided that these shell-plate-Frisbees should be given to her daddy for his birthday.
What I especially appreciate about this delightfully original craft idea is that Liam and Oona had totally different approaches to the project. As you can see in the photo above, Oona made a sort of collage with craft paper and shells, and Liam made a cute-patoot smiley-face. They were both, not unnaturally, very proud of their work, and they agreed to let me share these with the viewing public here at Beach Treasures and Treasure Beaches. Fun, right? Incidentally, their dad thought these projects were pretty cool, too, which was a very large part of the point!
Aaaaaaaaaaaand because Oona was the founder of this brilliant idea, she asked that she have a picture with her plate Frisbee and without her brother:
Tada! We hope you enjoy the fruits of our shell-hunting labor. See you at the beach- E.G.D.
