Help. Does anyone have any ideas for how to make the shell for a hermit crab costume for my 5 yr old son? I can do the claws and the antennae.

    Have you come up with any ideas? My son, almost 5, wants to be a hermit crab too. I considered using foam to make the shell, but haven't actually tried it yet. I did buy a red sweat outfit and made red claws for him to wear.

    paper mache all you need to do is make a mound of paper in the shape of the shell and cover it with either tin foil or plastic then take elmers glue and cut it with water 1 part glue to about 10 parts water. Then rip strips of news paper and dip them in the glue mixture. cover your form let dry then repeat a few times when you have a few layers on remove your form and paint your shell
