Kids can get a bit crabby (pun intended) when it’s time to take a break from outside summer fun, but this little crab is sure to be a hit while cooling down inside.
- Paper Plate
- Red Paint
- Red construction Paper
- Googly Eyes
The prep work on this little crab is supper easy. Start by cutting out the middle circle from the paper plate. Next, cut out six “legs” and two “claws”. If your child is preschool age or older, you can just draw the shapes and they can cut them out their selves.
Let your little one glue on the legs and the claws to one side of the paper plate circle. After that is done, let it dry for at least 20 minutes. It will still be wet at that point, but if you do not want to wait for it to dry completely, it will be fine. We had plans today, so we wanted to do something that could be done before we left. Once you are ready to come back to the crab, flip it over and let your child paint it! When the paint is dry, help your little one add googly eyes.
