Easy Fingerpainted Turtle for the Youngest Crafters


This is a simple craft that even your littlest kiddio can do! You prepare the pieces for them to paint. Set out a limited palate of color so your turtle remains bright and not muddy. We only used green and purple. The circles were made by using a toilet paper roll as a stamp. Put a little paint onto a lid top or flat dish. Swish around and then stamp. A paper plate works well for finger painting because it is coated and shiny so make sure you use the coated (top) side of the plate.

Supplies:
Small paper plate with center circle cut out and then cut in half
Take outer ring you just cut off plate to cut out head, 2 legs, and a tail
Googly Eye
Paint
Toilet paper roll
Plastic lid
Glue together

Great project, and so easy to do! I feel horrible that we still didn't mail a letter for Lulu. The last couple of days were so whirlwind. Hopefully we will make our letter tonight.

this is soooo cute! and i love purple and green together. i couldn't wait to try it, so we did it this morning - only i didn't have most of the right supplies so we had to improvise. no paperplates (so i just cut everything out of paper)...no finger paint - but i did have oil pastels, and h. is totally into those right now - loves blending them with her finger. so i just got out all the greens first and we covered our turtles with those and blended. then i got out purple tempera for the circles. but my shells were too little to use the tp rolls, so we just used q-tips. i can't wait to try it again with bigger stuff so we can use the tp rolls.
