Turtle Mosaic Craft

After spending ages watching the turtles at Turtle Lagoon, Ethan has decided that he would like a pet turtle as his Christmas gift. 
Hopefully he will forget all about it, come Christmas,
 but for now, we decided to create our own little pet turtles.

Material: Glue, Sundae lid (the plastic disposable kind), googly eyes and craft foam.

How to: 
*Cut the foam into the shape of a turtle, then cut up a few small squares or rectangles to  stick onto the 'turtle shell'

* Apply glue to the rim of the sundae lid and stick firmly onto the turtles back to create it's shell.
(this bit is best done by an adult)

* The kids can now stick the little foam squares all over the turtles shell.

* Glue on the googly eyes and allow to dry.

Crush and Little Dude (the Butterballs totally love the movie Finding Nemo) now live in the sand pit near the pond.


  1. How adorable! I love turtles so this craft is right up my alley!

  2. perfect these are. I am going to make this for sure.
