We are crazy 'bout searching for beach glass in this house. Usually, its shoved in pockets, forgotten in the rush home form the beach, and I'll find it when I do laundry, along with miscellaneous shells, rocks, and other treasures form the shore.
This week I wne through my "laundry jar" where all the items left in pockets end up. I seprated all the beach glass and placed it in my Goodwill-find stretch glass bowl. I really like how the bowl and the glass relate to one another.
We made macrame driftwood-shell-and-beach glass thingys when we camped at the beach in JUne. These were a fun craft for the kids to work on using mementos form the vacation. (Mainly I did them, though...the kids were too busy riding bikes and making smores!)
My tips for finding great glass on the beach are:
A rocky beach is best
Low tide is the time
Check the shoreline just where the wave washed up, among the rocks
Take off your sunglasses...look for a glint in the sun
Green glass is the easiest to spot
Make it a Great Day!
