She cements seashells by the seashore to create

A seashell menagerie

The little beach creatures shown here are so amusing, they may turn you into a shell-collecting addict in order to create a flock of your own. It’s a summer project that should delight youngsters, of course, and you might want to make some as little souvenirs for friends on your return from a vacation at the shore.

All you need, aside from a whimsical approach to anatomy, are shells (if you buy them, try a hobby, aquarium or pet shop), some googly eyes (from the dime store) and clear cement to glue the parts together. Designed by Mark Watson.
