|My cousin in law showing all the kids how to set up the crab trap. All 7 kids (ranging from 2+ to 7 years old) were so attentive.|
|All the kids trying to see our trap in the water. They could exactly spot crabs swimming around the waters.|
|While waiting, we had our picnic dinner. Didn't get a shot of them eating hungrily.|
|This is how we store the crabs caught- In one of the kid's sandcastle pail.|
|Our catch of the day- Flower crabs.|
|Shrimps, Can't really see them as they are transparent in colour.|
|This is how they look like.|
|Cheers! It's the weekend.|
|We had flower crab with cabbage soup. Super sweet and nice.|
|Our shrimps were fried with eggs for the kids.|
Special thanks to Wendy and family for making this weekend so fun for the kids and for our yummy dinner that chef Wendy cooked.
So this is another weekend activity you can do with your kids.
But before you go crab catching, don't forget your items:
1) Crab trap (with some ropes) - according to my cousin in law, it can be bought at beach road.
2) Fish Bait - buy the cheapest packet of fish available.I left it outside since morning. It seems the smelly the bait, the better the catch.
3) Tongs to transfer the crabs with.
4) A pail which you can keep the crabs in with some sea water to ensure that they survive longer.
5) A pair of scissors.
Have a good next weekend. And holidays is coming. One more thing to do with the whole family. Cheers!
