Today we made a hermit crab as part of our ocean theme.
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).
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.
Glue on the crab’s face, claws and eyes.
Then glue on the tissue paper covered paper plates.
After it has dried- put some dots of glue on and add some glitter.
The finished hermit crab.
