There are over 4,500 species of crabs in the world. However hermit crabs, king crabs, porcelain crabs, horseshoe crabs, & crab lice are not real crabs. How interesting!!! Although our crab isn’t a “real” crab it was still really fun to make.
- styrofoam bowl
- red paint
- googly eyes
- pain brush
- red card stock
Let’s make our crab…
1) Paint the bowl & let dry.
2) Draw the pincers & cut out. Cut out 8 equal sized strips for the legs & fold in half.
3) Glue the pincers & legs onto the the bowl.
4) Glue on the googly eyes & you are done!
Crabs communicate with each other by drumming or waving their pincers.
