Easy Directions to Make a Potato Masher Crabs
Gather your supplies. Using the scissors cut the six legs and two arms for each crabs you will make out of the red construction paper. Cut out the crab claws using the same red construction paper. Dip the potato masher into the red paint (make sure the entire surface is covered in paint so that it stamps a full circle) and stamp it on the blue bodies to make each crab. We made two crabs so stamped it two times.
Glue the legs down on each of the crabs bodies. Glue the legs along the sides of the crab and glue the two arms near the top of the crab.
At the top of each crab head glue on googly eyes and the crab claws at the end of the crabs’ arms.
