The turtle's shells can be any colour you want and you could also decorate them with sticky dots for some added decoration


Draw a turtle body on some cardstock and cut out.
Your child can colour the turtle body if they want and add some eyes.

Only the head, legs and tail will poke out from under the shell


Stick the painted egg box piece on top of the body with a little glue and then your turtle is ready to play with.

What else could you make that has a shell? What about a snail?
