Colorful Shell Fish Kids Craft

A family favorite summer activity is to go to the beach, plus some shell collecting.  The kids love to walk around the beach and find pretty shells, so we keep the best and bring them home.  So what can you with these cool shells, make some fun fish shells ...or shell fish, hehe.



Here is a video on how to make these sweet shell fish.



The supplies you need shells, paint, Xyron Sticker Maker, google eyes, paper, and scissors!!


1) Start by cleaning you shells and painting them fun bright colors.



2) Cut out 1 large triangle and 2 small triangles from cardstock.  Run the 3 triangles and 1 google eye through the Xyron 3" Sticker Maker to make them sticky.



3) Add the triangles to the fish to make the fins and stick on the eye.  Remove the sticky from the sections of the cardstock that are not stick to the shell using the Xyron Adhesive Eraser Cube.


These fish are super easy to make and so much fun!!



I just love all the bright colors of the fish, just a little paint make them just come to life!!



The Xyron Sticker Maker make this craft super simple and easy for little hand to stick down to little bits of paper to make the fins.



The kids and I mixed and matched the colors of the papers and the paint for each fish.  I am not sure which color set I like the best!!
