Walking crab

Crabs live in all the world’s oceans, in freshwater, and on land, are generally covered with a thick exoskeleton, and have a single pair of pincers.

In today’s craft, we also learned about the elasticity of certain objects. We also learned that the force with which you pull the rope makes the crab go slower or faster.

What all you would need:

Paper cups

Battery cell


Rubber band





Red Sheet


1. Grab a paper cup and put one over it, and cut two sides of both the cups together. (North and south)

2. Now, get a battery cell and tape a rubber band on it and a thread that you can roll over it.

3. With the help of a toothpick, make the thread go from one cup hole to another and keep the batter cell in between and lock it with a toothpick.

4. Now, take the third cup and paint it and decorate it like a crab. We made its hands and legs on folding paper and glued it on the third cup, and placed it over the two cups.

5. Charge your walking crab by pulling the thread and watching it walk. Miracle.
