The weather here in California has been hot, hot, HOT this week, and my boys and I have been daydreaming about next month’s beach vacation. To tide us over (haha!) until we’re splashing in salt water and sitting with the sand between our toes, we decided to create some beach themed sand and shell artwork.
- Elmer’s Foam Board
- Elmer’s Glue All
- Elmer’s Glitter Set
- Elmer’s Painters
- Elmer’s Swirl Glam Glitter Glue
We used the glitter set to add glittery blue dots and also used the silver paint marker to add even more finishing detail. I think it would be really fun to also make a super sized version of the monogram, too, and use both sand and shells to fill in the letter.
For the abstract piece, Simon used the Glue All to make a swirl in the center of his foam board, and then I helped him cover the glue with sand. He picked out a bunch of shells and placed them on the border, and I helped him glue them in place. Easy peasy!
