Turtles are absolutely fascinating creatures, as far as I’m concerned. Their actions just seem so deliberate and thoughtful, yet unintentionally hilarious. They’re like the wise old man of the outside world. Well this Paper Bowl and Craft Stick Turtle Craft is in honor of those wise, funny, fascinating turtles!
Our Paper Bowl and Craft Stick Turtles start with a small disposable paper bowl and 3 large craft sticks.
Paint the bowl shell green, glue the craft stick body together, then slide it into a front and back slit on the shell. Add some googly eyes and a few spots complete look, because turtles are simple creatures. Amazingly awesome simple creatures. That are actually rather inspiring in their determination.
- small disposable paper bowl
- 3 large craft sticks
- green paint
- green construction paper
- 1” paper punch
- large googly eyes
First, paint your bowl green. Let dry.
Glue craft sticks together so there’s a head, tail, and 4 legs.
Once the bowl is dry, carefully snip 2 slits along the rim, one in front and one in back. Slide the “head” of the craft stick into one slit, the “tail” into the other.
Add googly eyes. Punch 4 1” circles out of the green construction paper and glue onto the top of the shell.
Here’s to you, the wise, fascinating turtles! And a fun craft, too! Be sure to check out more fun animal crafts at Kid Things!
