Homemade pet jelly fish. that's about the neatest thing EVER. I did this with my 3rd, 4th and 5th grade class. Told them to bring in a bottle and a bag. Some of the kids brought it in and the rest of the kids thought it was dumb. After we did this project, the kids who thought it was dumb, didn't think so anymore. Kids who made them, named them and love them at home now.

Have done this on the beach. Take your bag of plaster of paris, mix with sea water. Make depression in damp sand. Put in dead critters, shells, etc. faced toward the bottom. Pour plaster. Let dry and dig around it carefull to remove. Can use irregular shape or press a pail or dish into sand. Can even make sand castles with decorations. They last a long time as garden decor.
