| PRETTY SEASHELLS
Cut seashell shapes out of construction paper. Fill a baking
pan with water. Show your children how to squeeze a few drips
of oil paint on the surface of the water, then use a craft stick
to gently swirl the paint around. One at a time, let the children
place their seashell shapes on top of the water and paint. The
paint will adhere to the paper, leaving a swirling design. Continue
to add drops of paint to the water as needed. Allow the seashell
shapes to dry.
Cut ovals out of gray construction paper and teeth shape out
of white construction paper. Give each of your children an oval
and seven or eight teeth shapes. Have the children turn their
ovals sideways. Show them how to glue their teeth shapes in
a row on their ovals to create a shark's mouth. Let the children
use black markers to add eyes to complete their shark faces.
