Thrive After Three

Engaging programs to keep kids coming back to the library

House for Hermit Crab

Hermit Crab SuppliesI recently acquired glitter paint to play with Eric Carle’s A House for Hermit Crab. I love putting out art supplies and letting the kids explore. You can do the same thing by copying Eric Carle Hermit Crab on legal size paper. If the children are old enough, give them a paper plate to cut a swirly into it to create a shell. If they are too young, prep it ahead of time. You can put out stickers for them to decorate the shell. (I found great ones here.)
