I grew up on the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland, so naturally I’ve had LOTS of exposure to blue crabs. Not only are they fun to look at, they are also fun to eat. I designed this printable crab craft for my daughter to make while we visit my family. She ended up using blue and green watercolors and it turned out great! She gave it to my mom, who is crab-obsessed. =) A while back, we also made this Printable Crab Craft, as well as this Handprint Crab Craft. Print this new craft template below and enjoy!
