Rainbows are pure love and happiness for me. If I could have it my way all of my crafts would be rainbow colored. Well not all but most would be.There is something so magical and fun about rainbows. So for the Ocean Series that I am doing these days, today I decided to make Rainbow Crab Craft. And you will not believe but it was actually completely my daughters idea.
Crafts in Ocean Series
A long time back when i started my blog i made a crab craft using paper plates. And they turned out so pretty. They are one of my most popular crafts. You can check them out in the Ocean Craft section.
But this time round it was my daughter who surprised me with her own version of it. And she very cleverly decided to use plain paper, her markers and stapler. She made her Crab Craft using the colors of the rainbow. It looked so gorgeous!
By the way did you know that in nature Rainbow Crabs really do exist. And this is how she got this adorable idea!
