Slow-Poke Turtles craft

Cute and cunning turtles star in many children’s stories. Here’s a quick and easy way to make a reptile that will crawl right into your heart.

  • 1.

    Using Crayola® Washable Markers, draw a turtle-shell pattern on the bottom of a paper bowl. Color the hexagons with a green marker. Give the shell a two-tone effect by coloring some hexagons yellow with green on top. Outline your pattern with a darker, contrasting shade to enhance your pattern.

  • 2.

    On a small paper plate, use your markers to draw and color a turtle head, four feet, and a tail. Tear out the pieces.

  • 3.

    Apply Crayola School Glue around the rim of another small paper plate. Place the turtle’s head, feet, and tail in the correct positions along the rim. Press the shell on top. Air-dry the glue.
