Make a Holiday Beach Craft! With Rob “Rockfish” Gelling

December 9, 2023 @ 2:00 pm

First learn the natural histories of the animals that produced the shells that we will use to design and build a beach craft. Then check out the live critters that inhabit the shells in our Touch Tank and other museum exhibits. Finally create your beachy craft!  Do a beach walk and collect shells, stones, and driftwood to bring to the class if you would like. Beach craft ideas include:  a whelk planter, a rock-a-saurus, a beach pebble mosaic, clam shell jewelry dish, a gull feather pen, seaweed mountings, and a starfish Santa.

Program Leader:  Rob “Rockfish” Gelling, SOFO Environmental Educator
