Getting Crabby at the End of the School Year With Shoo Rayner
The teachers and the students are getting crabby at the end of the school year. Ha ha. 😃 As an art teacher, I am challenged to find projects that are fun for the kids. I stumbled upon this awesome "How to Draw a Crab" on YouTube. The kids absolutely loved drawing and painting this crab!
Are these crabs cute or what?
Ever heard of Shoo Rayner? Shoo Rayner is a children's book author and illustrator that lives in Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire. He has written and illustrated hundreds of books. Rayner's videos on YouTube have over 30 million views, Wowza.
The book the crab video is based on is Nip! Nip!

My students loved hearing Shoo Rayner talk on the video. 😍 Our middle Georgia accent is quite different from Shoo's British talk. The video was so fun for the kids!
Thanks so much for the inspiration, Shoo!
I watered down tempera paint.
I showed the Shoo's crab video.
The kids used oil pastel to draw along.
The kids painted.
They were so happy😁😁😁😁 with the results.
I was happy to see them so happy. 😁
I hope these crabs making you smile. The video below makes me smile. I thought it would be appropriate because Shoo is a Brit and well, so is Ringo.
