Windchimes made of sea things, beads, and recycled can lids seemed like a good fit for our deep sea-themed Bible School program. It will take two days. Kids will paint the shells, lids, and wooden beads, and add string, the first day; assemble the second day. Project would be good for a nature camp or pool party, too.
Approximate Time: Two 20-30 minute sessions.
*Can lids must be the kind left when you use the Pampered Chef-style can opener. The other kind are too sharp around the edges!

What a wonderful idea for Daily Vacation Bible School. We try to always pick some kind of natural materials for projects too. Teaches kids about all the things God has put here for us to enjoy. There are so many things you can do with seashells if you live in an area where you can find them.
I was the art director for VBS for over 10 years and I too, looked for things like this to make as crafts, things that kids could keep and not be disposible. Be surprised when asking in the bulletin for the supplies how many come to share their collections!
