In my mind, this was a lobster egg carton craft. Lol. But, it really does look more like a crab. As far as crustaceans go, egg cartons lend themselves better to crabs because lobsters have long tails!
So why were lobsters on my mind, you ask? A week ago I ordered lobsters to be delivered by FedEx direct from a small fisherman in Atlantic Canada. I decided I wanted to do something special and adventurous in the kitchen and somehow, cooking a lobster for the first time ever became THE thing.
It was fun, stressful, horrifying and delicious. If you like a kitchen adventure and have never done it, I recommend it. If you've never cooked before, definitely don't start with lobster... stick with canned crab!
- egg carton cups
- red paint
- 2 or more googly eyes
- red pipe cleaners
- red construction paper
- Cut off one egg holder from its carton and paint it red.
- Cut up your red pipe cleaners to create the legs (8 in total). Also, cut claws out of your red construction paper; attach these to the 2 front legs.
- Glue each piece onto the egg carton as desired. Your crab is finished!
