Circle Crab Craft Project

It’s almost summer. So, it’s almost time to start making all of the summer and sea life crafts! And, I especially love crabs. Fiddler crabs are my favorite, but really, all crabs are adorable to me. When I was a teacher, I loved making cute little crab crafts with my little learners. And, this cute little circle crab craft project is one of my favorite crafts ever!

Circle Crab Craft Project

Turn this craft into a full blown ocean art project by combining it with this Ocean Coral Blow Painting Tutorial!

Crab Project Supplies:

  • Construction or card stock paper.
  • Scissors.
  • School glue.
  • Sharpie or other markers. 
  • Felt.
  • Optional – circle shapes for templates

This fun little circle crab craft is very easy to make for kids of all ages. However, you may need to help the littler ones cut out the circle shapes.

First, gather all of your supplies. We used a half a piece of felt for one crab, and one full sheet of card stock, plus some school glue, and a marker.

We used a cup and a bowl to trace the circles for the crab. Then we made two smaller circles and one larger one for each crab. Once each circle was traced onto the felt, I cut out each circle.

After the circles were cut, I folded them in half. I creased them to make the folds stay better. You could use paper or even a cute fabric too.

Then, I added a little bit of glue to folded circles and placed them on the card stock paper. The smaller circles are the pinchers, and the larger one is the crab’s body.

Once the crab’s body and pinchers were glued in place, I used the marker to draw six crab legs and two crab eyes. You could use blue paper and add some beach waves too.
