    To make a Turtle Table Game: Cut roll paper to fit your table. Or use a plain paper tablecloth. Draw a pond for your turtles. You could make lily pads and ripples of water. Maybe draw logs or rocks for sunning and tall grass for shade. Is it time to eat? Your pond makes a great tablecloth.

    After you eat, hold turtle races on the table runner. Write the words START and FINISH at the ends. Turtles hop or swim from one stop to another!
