When building your project, experiment with new and different ways of putting it together. The most important thing is to have fun!

1Find these or similar supplies!
• A bowl (paper or plastic)
• Masking tape
• Some old cardboard or construction paper
• Markers or pens for customizing

1. Getting started!

This project has a very basic design. Take a paper bowl (or plate) and use it as your turtle’s shell. Cut out some feet, a tail, and the head from some cardboard or paper.


2. Tape on your pieces!

Next tape your pieces to the bowl. To get your turtle to stand upright you can have your legs angled down along the sides of the bowl.


3. Decorate your turtles!

Now its time to color your turtle. You can decorate however you’d like, I chose to color my turtle with markers but you can paint or glue on anything.


54. Add eyes!

I cut out some paper circles and glued them to my turtles face. Its easy to make some fun cartoon eyes this way.
