Activity Overview

Make a Hand print Crab art project that everyone will love and treasure. There is nothing like a hand print or a foot print to freeze a moment of time in your child's life. We don't use them as often as we should to capture those ever growing extremities. Why not turn those into art projects that are fun to make and that you can save forever. Art projects like this one make great gifts for relatives as well. Try gathering all of your little ones to create a crab family all on one page.
