This shell doll is a fun craft to do in the summer. Especially if you have just come back from the beach and have collected lots of shells.
You will need:
Paint the top of the scallop shell with pink and blue paint to create a stripy pattern and leave to dry.
Cut out a ballerina shape from a sheet of white cardstock, big enough so that the shell fits over it as a dress. Color in the hair at the top, and shoes at the bottom, then fill the rest with a skin colored pen. Stick two googly eyes onto the face and draw a mouth underneath with a black pen.
Glue the shell to the ballerina shape to create a dress. Wait until the glue has completely dried before picking it up otherwise the shell may slide off.
