Start a collection of treasures and gems from the sea when you snag some seashells with these tips.

What You'll Need:

  • Bucket for collecting shells
  • Old newspapers

A sandy shoreline, especially one protected by an offshore reef, is a great place to collect shells in the morning of a calm day at low tide, especially after a storm. Strong winds and high waves will have littered the beach with ocean debris.

Carry a bucket and some old newspapers for wrapping up your shells. When you find a good shell, check it for animals. If it is empty, wrap up the shell in newspaper and add it to your bucket.

The next beach craft is a sandy sculpture that's sure to make a great shore project.
