One beautiful Saturday morning when Princess RiverStar was playing on the beach with her friends, the tide washed in a handful of tiny crabs.
The crabs scattered quickly racing back for the water.
But it was too late, the children had already seen them and ran after them laughing and screaming with delight.
However, before they could catch one, all the crabs had scampered back into the water or buried themselves in the sand.
Disappointed, the children started going back to their sand castles and games.
But, then there was another loud happy scream.
It was followed by a sprint to the water that the other children quickly joined.
The next wave had washed another batch of crabs up onto the shore.
But, as fast as the kids were, the crabs were faster.
Even when several kids surrounded a crab, the crab would bury itself in the sand and disappear before the kids could dig it out.
The kids were giggling and laughing to no end with the new game.
But, they were still frustrated.
They wanted to catch a crab.
They went to their parents for help.
But, all the parents would say is that they were smart enough to figure it out on their own.
So, they sat down and shared ideas…
