Arts and Crafts
Drill or pound little holes in the shells, wire them together for the angel wings, or use them to make necklaces. Shell necklaces would be nice intertwined with the leis.
Get larger shells and let them paint the inside of them using acrylic paints - they could paint anything from nature.
Try fashioning grass skirts from paper grocery bags.
Get some silk hibiscus flowers from the craft store. Have the kids string them to make their own leis.
1/2 a sea shell (med - large in size)
Glue a magnet to the *outside* of the shell (back). Glue Spanish moss inside the shell, added silk flowers/leaves a butterfly and a ribbon and VOILA instant Hawaiian Luau craft!!
Purchase some large fish (at least 12 inches long) paint the side of the fish any way you wish. Choose to leave out the eye or to color it a different color etc. Using some type of finger-paint paper, press over the top of the painted side of the fish. You can leave this as a flat piece of art or you can go for the other side on another piece of paper. Try cutting out the dried pieces, leaving a bit of a border, and you can use it as a windsock, with openings at the mouth and the tail. You could also stuff your trophies to mount to the wall. Better yet, stuff it, and tie it to the end of a string and a stick. “Look what we caught in Hawaii Mom!”
