Based on Eric Carle’s A House for Hermit Crab follow along as Hermit outgrows his shell and moves into a new shell. He decorates his new “home” with a variety of sea items and at the end of the year he has outgrown his shell again and gives it to another crab and moves on. Great for discussing growth and change! Perfect for teachers, preschools, early childhood centers, family day care, playgroups, and families. Felt pieces help with the development of fine motor skills as well.

NOTE: I use freezer paper to print and cut my patterns. It is the secret to cutting small precise pieces! Freezer paper is available as a roll in grocery stores and can be cut into 8 1/2″ x 11″ sheets to print on or you can purchase precut sheets.

A little about me. My name is Kathy and I have been married to my hubby Paul for 47 years. Where has the time gone? We have 3 children – Steve, Ryan and Holly – and one wonderful son-in-law Dustin. I am a grandma to Malin and Parker and they keep me on my toes. Besides my family and my shop I enjoy traveling, photography, and reading.
