Turtle Power

Our new science unit is on Aquatic Herps, including Turtles!!!  We'll share more about what we've learned soon in our review of our new curriculum, but we did a sea turtle craft project that we're sharing now.

To make life easier, I cut out the turtle's shell...excuse me, carapace, and his flippers and head.   Jude wanted scutes drawn on his carapace.  Damien just wanted to color.

Jude had to add his name.  
He was itching to use the red marker for something, and beside, he didn't want the turtles to get mixed up.

After the shells were colored, we added the legs and arms.  I had to go dig out an extra glue stick, because nobody was willing to share.

Next came the googley eyes.

Damien used his gluestick for his turtle's eyes.  Jude opted for regular "squeezy" glue.

Gimme some fin! Dude!!

  3. I wish I had done a study on Turtles with my turtle loving daughter when she was so young. Love the turtles they created! I'm so excited to be following you.

  4. We made similar turtles last year with my son! Very cute! Thanks for linking up at Bee Crafty Kids! :)
