Kids can put four red Wikki Stix on each side of the red liner to make the crab’s legs. Heart-shaped claws for the crab can be made with additional red Wikki Stix. To make the crabs eyes, fold one black Wikki Stix in half and create small black balls by pressing each end into a spiral or ball shape. Attach the black Wikki Stix firmly behind the top of the red cupcake liner.
