What do you need to make this seashell DIY? 

You will need seashells of all different sizes and colors if possible to add variety to your school of fish! If you don’t happen to live seaside and/or are unable to collect seashells, you can find an assortment of seashells online.

The next step is to go forth in nature and gather some fun leaves, foliage and flowers!  You can go on a walk and pick up any fallen leaves or head to your backyard and see what’s available! 

Then the fun part begins, designing your fish! You’ll want the kids to lay out the nature items on the seashells first. The final step will be to glue the pieces down. We also added a googly eye, but you can easily just draw an eye from a black marker!

Yes, the leaves and foliage will wither over time but the seashells still look cute as fish! Art is about the process anyway 🙂 If you want your fish to last longer, you can buy artificial craft leaves and glue them on.
