Crab Crafts

Here is a cute crab hand print craft one of the teachers at my school did for her classes' Art By Me project.

Her class is called The Creative Crabs, so this is a perfect project for her class.

Her class also has a pet hermit crab they takes turns caring for on the weekends.


Here is another cute crab project my kids and I did a while back. The crabs are made from pasta shells.

Go here for the directions.

Parents' Ideas said...

Thank you very much for the ideas you are sharing in this blog! Very ispiring! We've already tried to implement the ones which refer to hand painting.

It seems each mum loves keeping imprints of her child’s hands (and feet, if possible). In the part of our blog which is in Russian we asked our readers to send us the pictures they have painted together with their kids using hand and foot imprints. May be, the ideas we've collected will be useful for you: for teaching and at home:
