Pipe Cleaners and Paper Crab Craft

This Pipe Cleaners and Paper Crab Craft is a great summer project.

It’s easy to make and if you use some pebbles and add them on the crab’s legs it will stand on it’s own. Pretty sweet right?

You probably know Sebastian the crab from The Little Mermaid cartoon. We watched this cartoon today and we got an idea to make a wobbler crab craft.

We really like crab projects because all of them turn out really nice. Crabs really are fun and this one makes a wonderful summer craft.
