I’ve been a landlocked girl all my life. The only time we get to go to the beach is on a major vacation. I’m not really up to speed on the differences between aquatic animals. So, now I’ll ask you…what is the difference between a lobster and a crab??? I could have googled it, but that just wouldn’t be as fun. :)
I saw the idea for this Handprint and Footprint Lobster on the website Just for Fun and LOVED it. And it uses your child’s handprints and footprint…you can’t get much cuter than that!
Here’s what you’ll need: red paint, a piece of construction paper, a pair of googly eyes, and 2 cute little hands, and 1 cute little foot.
And here’s just a hint to make this project easier: Use a paintbrush to paint your child’s hand and foot rather than dipping it. It is MUCH easier. I just had Big Brother sit in a chair, I painted his foot, then brought the paper up to him rather than having him step on it. A quick trip to the sink and his feet were redless!
Head on over here for the step-by-step directions.
