Preschool Seashell Craft Ideas

There are so many fun and engaging ways to use this Free Printable Seashell Template. After all, little kids learn best through hands-on experiences. Here are a few of my favorites:

  • Print the seashell template on heavy cardstock, cut out, and create an adorable mixed media seashell. We’ve explored sponge painting, using a brayer, bubble wrap, and so much more with this simple template outline.
  • Paint lots of seashells then string them together to make a funky beach-themed banner. Don’t forget to use some sparkly blue fiber and maybe mix in a few starfish too. You’ll have a one-of-a-kind decoration in no time!
  • Cut out your scallop shell template and then place it in a small box or pan. Add a few drops of paint and a bouncy ball to create seashell ball paintings. This is such a fun way to make ocean art.
  • Print your seashell template on color cardstock then trace the scallop shell outline with glitter glue pens. This is not only great fine motor practice, but it’s also a wonderful way to decorate your classroom or homeschool this Summer.
  • Paint the seashell with watercolors and then sprinkle on salt to create fun ocean-themed process art. This is the perfect way to learn about the ocean while experimenting with salt and watercolor chemical reactions.
