The Clumsy Crab

We read The Clumsy Crab. Then we brainstormed other ways Clumsy Crab could use his pincers. We used Pebblego to learn facts about real crabs.



The directions for making Clumsy Crab

Each child needs:
(1) 6 X 9 rectangle (red) the body
(1) 1 1/2 X 2 rectangle (pink) the mouth
(4) 1 X 1 squares (orange) spots
(6) 1 X 6 rectangles (red) legs
(2) 1 X 2 rectangles (red) eye stalks
(2) 2 X 2 squares (red) outer eyes
(2) 1 1/2 X 1 1/2 squares (white) inner eyes
(2) 1 X 4 rectangles (red) short pincer legs
(2) 6 X 3 rectangles (red) pincers

to make the body: hold the rectangle side to side, clip the bottom corners and round

to make the mouth: hold the rectangle side to side, clip the bottom corners and round

to make the spots: clip all four corners and round

to make the eyes: glue on the eye stalks, clip all four corners and round the outer eyes and the inner eyes, glue the outer eyes on the eye stalks, color black circles in the middle of the inner eyes, glue the inner eyes onto the outer eyes

to make the legs: accordion fold 6 long legs, color black on the ends, glue onto the sides of the body

to make the pincers: glue the short pincer legs onto the crab at the top, hold the pincer pieces side to side, clip the side corners and round, the cut a "v" out of the other side to make the pincer, glue them onto the pincer legs
