Crafting with seashells is something quite new to me. I grew up in a steppe area, no real river and I didn’t see the real sea until I was 19 years old. Before that I only new that you could “hear the sea” if you put a seashell to your ear (not really, right? But as a child I loved listening to the sea and kept climbing up high to reach two precious seashells my mother and father brought from their vacation to the Black Sea).
Now that we live by the seaside, I find it is a great opportunity to embrace the gifts of nature and use seashells as crafting material for my own children and in my classrooms.
