  • scissors

step by step tutorial

Start this Paper Cup Crafts by getting your red cup! Paper cups work best.

You can draw the eyes directly on the paper cup, or you can make some and stick them on the cup. Anyway, fine. Have fun with your eyes. You can try many different looks.

The next step is to draw a funny smile on the crab! Practice smiling on a piece of paper before deciding on the last one for the crab!

Take the time to trim the crab claws. Glue the claws to the glass.

Next, you’ll work on the crab’s legs. If you’ve never made crab legs before, you’ll love this craft part. You can spend time being creative and that’s the best thing about arts and crafts.

Glue your legs to the side of your body.

The result is this cute paper crab. She can sing, dance and smile – the options are endless! This is where your child goes crazy and has fun with his newly completed craft.
