|Check out these gorgeous hermit crabs (also called crazy crabs) our excellent DOTT teacher Miss Woods made with my class!|
You need a paper plate, coloured card, edicol dye, paint, black marker, pipecleaners and googly eyes.
Students decorated their paper plate with a black marker in a swirly shape. They then painted it with edicol dye. When dry the plate was cut to look like a shell.
Students made hand prints on card and then cut them out when they were dry. Make sure the fingers are apart. This will be the crab.
Using the pipecleaners curl at the top and attach googly eyes. We used a hot glue gun to make sure they attached properly.
Add all piece together now to create the hermit crab. The handprit into the opening and the pipecleaner eyes to the top part of the shell.
'Remember keep calm and pretend it's on the lesson plan!'
