What you need:
- Plasticine for children
If you live close to the beach, then this is a great activity.
Take your little ones out for a walk on the beach and get them to find and collect as many different shapes, colours and sized seashells as they can. (You may need to help the younger ones).
Bring them home, wash and dry them.
Roll out the plasticine and then let your little’s print away using the shells. They can turn the shells over and push them down in the plasticine and lift them up to reveal the pretty patterns.
Get them to roll their finger over the pattern to feel how the playdough has changed shape.
Tip – Playdough works just as well. (There is a playdough recipe above.)
