First have your child paint a water scene on the bottom of their cardstock. While they are working on that, take your tan tissue paper and cut it into small squares.

Now take your glue stick and the tan tissue paper & glue a line along the “ocean water” to create the “beach.” You can make it as wide or as narrow as you like.

Now you are ready to make your crab! Squirt some red paint on a small paper plate. Take your apple and cut it half with your knife. Now take one apple half and cut it again, in half.

Take the large apple half and rub it in the red paint, until it’s completely covered. Press it down on the center of your “beach” scene. Now grab your smaller apple half, dip it in red paint and press it down on the cardstock twice, for the crab’s claws.

To finish the Apple Stamped Crab – take a small paint brush and draw some lines to connect the claws to the body, as well as some lines for the legs & eyes. Then grab your marker and draw some circle eyeballs so he can see. Once done, let it all dry completely before displaying proudly!!!
