Turtle Framed Art - framed painting with decorated turtle in the center and caption on the bottomMy 2 year old daughter absolutely loves painting! She makes really nice artwork pieces and I have been meaning to frame some. Here's a great way of displaying her artwork with a cute turtle silhouette in the form of her hands (like artist hands) for the painting. Ties in and adds a cute touch with the phrase "I turtle-y love you!". Ready to be thumbtacked to the wall, at work desk, in your child's bedroom, on the fridge, or if you have a spot in your home like a bulletin board/whiteboard to hang.

  • construction paper
  • googly eyes
