If you love the turtles at the Nature Museum as much as we do, we’ve got the perfect activity for you! Follow along to make your own adorable turtle.
- Coloring tool (crayons, pencils, markers)
- Tape or glue
Use two pieces of paper (or a paper plate) to create two outlines of turtle shells. Cut along the lines to cut out your turtle shell. Cut out 6 smaller circles to use as a head, tail and legs. Color in your turtle’s shells, legs, tail, and head.
Flip over your turtle shell, legs and head. Use tape or glue to attach the legs, head and tail to the bottom of the shell. Then, tape or glue the plastron (the bottom shell) to the turtle.
Flip your turtle back over and show someone in your house your turtle!
