C Is for Crab Craft

child assembling C Is for Crab craft

Learning the letter C will be a snap with this week’s ABC Craft! But you better watch your fingers! This crabby crustacean may be cute, but he’s got a great big pair of pincers!

Here’s What You’ll Need

  • 2 sheets of printer paper
  • Card stock (we used red and sky blue)
  • C Is for Crab Craft templates
  • 2 “googly” eyes
  • Glue stick
  • Pencil and black marker
  • Scissors

Instructions for Assembling Your Letter C Craft

  1. Print the C Is for Crab Craft templates.
  2. Cut out the templates and trace the letter C and the crab pincers and eye parts onto card stock.
  3. Cut out the letter C and crab pieces.
  4. Glue the letter C and the crab pieces onto a full sheet of card stock (we used sky blue, but you can use any color you like) to form a crab.
  5. Affix a googly eye to each of the crab’s eye sockets.
  6. Use a black marker to draw the crab’s mouth onto the letter C. (See the sample on the template for placement.)

Was there ever a book recommendation to go along with the letter craft? I seem to remember a suggestion to read Corduroy the same week you do the crab craft; though I can’t seem to find this anywhere on the blog – maybe it was a dream?
thoughts?

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

Wendy,
I don’t recall a suggestion to read Corduroy along with this craft, but we did review Corduroy a while back!
