Easy Turtle Craft for Kids

My kids enjoy having a "pet" themed art piece to accompany their book when it's story time. Last week, we read a book, from the library, so they wanted to make a turtle too.

This is an easy and fun craft, you may have all the supplies on hand already too!

Total Time: 20 minutes + drying time

Source: Inspired by Pinterest



  1. Paint your craft stick a shade of green. Allow to dry.
  2. Using a cupcake liner, flatten with your hands, and then puff back up slightly.
  3. Using green scrapbook paper, freestyle the head and tail of the turtle.
  4. Hot glue down wiggly eyes to the head of the turtle.
  5. Once paint has dried, as shown below - create a crisscross "X" shape and hot glue the center down (wider in the front).
  6. Secure the shell of the turtle (cupcake liner) with dots of hot glue on the stick.
  7. Apply tape to the tip of the turtle head and some glue stick for extra reinforcement. Secure onto the cupcake liner and do the same with the tail.
  8. Finished turtle.
