Make a Crab-Apple

Crab apple - Sea Snacks Ranger Rick

You’ll dive into snack time when this healthy crab apple is on the menu!

What You Need

  • graham crackers
  • 1 apple
  • 1 strawberry
  • For the eyes: dried black-eyed peas, raisins, or chocolate chips

What You Do

  1. Crush the crackers.
    For “sand,” crush some graham crackers and sprinkle them on a plate.
  2. Cut the apple.
    Cut an apple in half and place one half on the crumbs, cut-side down. Cut the other half into 10 slices for the legs and arrange them around the crab.
  3. Create the claws.
    For the claws, cut four slices from a strawberry and place them next to the two front legs, as shown. Press two eyes into the apple.
