How to craft your own Sebastian The Crab!!

We love this quick and fun craft! Whether you child is a Spongebob fanatic (Hello Mr Krabs!) or a Little Mermaid Princess (Under the sea with Sebastian!).

Don’t forget to add this fabulous creation to your underwater city, along with your Jellyfish!

You Will Need:

  • A clean Pipin Pear pot
  • PVA Glue
  • Orange or Red Paint
  • Plain Card
  • Googly Eyes
  • A Pen
  • Scissors


  1. Wash out a Pipin Pear pot and remove the label.
  2. Paint the outside of the pot with acrylic paint!
    • TOP TIP – To stop your paint from flaking later on, mix a bit of PVA glue into the paint in a small bowl!
  3. On your piece of card, draw the shapes shown in Pic 3.
  4. Ask an adult to help cut out your shapes and then paint them!
  5. Once dry, add googly eyes and fold back a section of each shape, as shown in Pic 5.
  6. Apple glue to the folded back sections and stick them to the pot to make your crab!
  7. Et voilá, you now have another beautiful craft to add to you collection!
