Spelling with Sea Shells


Wondering what to do with all the seashells your child collects on the beach? Keep him busy by having him write out his name or words and phrases in the sand with his shells. Try to guess what word he's spelling after each shell letter he "writes," or have him draw a picture using the shells and guess what he's creating. Children ages 6 to 10 will probably have the most fun with this game.
