Hermit Crab

Today we made a hermit crab as part of our ocean theme.

Our Crafts ~N~ Things

Here’s what you’ll need: paper plate, glue, wiggly eyes, construction paper in variety of colors, tissue paper, something to mix some glue and water in, and glitter (optional).

Our Crafts ~N~ Things

Cut the paper plate into 4 pieces- each piece a little smaller than the one before.

Tear up your tissue paper- you can use any two colors you want.

Mix glue and water- more glue than water and brush it onto the paper plate- cover the plate with tissue paper.  You can paint the paper plates instead of using tissue paper too.

While your child is busy putting the tissue paper on, cut out a face and claws for your hermit crab and some sand for the beach.
