[Place the rock on top of the scissors, the rock becomes a snail shell and the scissors become the snail’s antennae.]

It’s a crab! [Hold your pinchers up and walk around the room sideways!]
Rock, scissors, paper.
Rock, scissors, paper.
One, two, three.

[Place your hands on both sides of the face to simulate a lion’s mane.]
