    Guests at your party will LOVE to make a tropical colored "shell" necklace with Crayola Neon Model Magic. Here are directions to share with them. Decide how many shells you want on your necklace. Shape Model Magic into shells with your fingers or on the back of a teaspoon. Or cut out shell shapes with a cookie cutter.

    Use a straw to poke a hole into the top of each shell. If you like, press designs into the shell with textured objects such as fork tines or sea shells..

    Measure out yarn for your necklace. Cut it with Crayola Scissors. Thread shells, tying each one separately. Air-dry your necklace overnight.

    Attach the ends of your necklace with tape when it is ready to wear. Remember to take your shell necklace off before you swim!
