A few weeks ago, a bunch of us went to the Satrosphere for the BBC’s Walking with Dinosaurs. This event culminated with a dino craft that was very fun and easy! Since I led crafts at our church’s play group after that, I took Kate’s suggestion and morphed the dinosaur into a turtle, linking it to the creation story.
What you need
- paper plates
- construction paper
- double-sided tape
How to make the turtle
- Cut the paper plates in half.
- Cut 3 short pieces of double-sided tape. Un-peel one side and stick them on the puffy side of the plate for feet and a head.
- Cut out a head/leg shape from the construction paper. I found that a slightly rounded piece worked for all 3 pieces. You will need 3 per turtle.
- Help the kids peel off the final papers from the tape so they can stick on the heads and legs. You can also draw on an eye and claws. The kids can draw on the turtle as they like!
