Painting sand dollars

We’ve been spending our final days of summer holiday at our little beach house on Bainbridge Island. The weather has cooled down in the past week and the days have become noticeably shorter.  Autumn is definitely in the air!

A couple days ago when the weather was cloudy and the kids were feeling a bit stir crazy, we decided to sit down for a little paint session. We’ve already painted rocks, so this time we decided to paint our collection of sand dollars. It was such a fun activity!

It was fun to see the different variations of painting techniques. Some of us chose to paint the star, while others decided the sand dollars should look like tie-dye! : ) In any case, it was a fun way to spend a cloudy afternoon.

This is awesome! I used to collect sand dollars as a little kid but never thought of painting them…it looks so fun. Thanks for the great idea. I’m passing this on to my kids.
