I'm sure most of you have something like this in your home, or at your desk at work. It's the ubiquitous painted seashells, sometimes the painted and decorated rocks. You got them for Mother's Day or your birthday, maybe. We all made them at one time or another, my dad still has the rock I made for him on his dresser!These seashells were decorated for me by my nephews when they were 3. I love the glitter and feathers, we never had those back in the day! The small scallop shell in red nd blue is one I made for my mother many years ago.I keep these shells on my coffee table in an antique trug box along with shells and coral from various trips. The kids love to look at them and talk about how they don't remember making the shells, and their sister always wonders why there isn't one from her. Instead, I have a clay turtle she made me. Or it may be a butterfly. No one is sure.
So what have you got for natural items enhanced by children? A pet rock? Snake made of stones?
