Clam Shell Masterpieces

My granddaughter Dana returned from California recently with some beautiful clam shell masterpieces that she had created. She has always been creative and these lovely shells are a great way to capture those memories.  So if you have taken the kids on a beach side vacation, make sure they bring home a variety of shells for craft projects after their return.

Trivia: The  clam  has  no head, no biting mouth parts and no arms or legs
