Take advantage of a trip to the beach to collect shells for this pretty shell photo frame - it makes a sweet gift which the kids can make themselves, too.
You will need:
An inexpensive photo frame
Tester pot of emulsion paint or poster or acrylic paint.
Strong glue (or hot glue gun)
Paint your frame and leave to dry.
Arrange your shells on the frame. When happy with their positioning, older children can glue them into position themselves using strong glue or a hot glue gun. Younger children may need to ask for adult help.
