Easy Paper PlateTurtle Craft

This paper plate tutle is simple to make. Use it as a fingerpaintig project for your yongest kids. The colors used here were green and purple. You can change the color scheme, but keep it to 2 colors. If you mix too many, it looks muddy.


  • paper plate
  • scissors
  • paints
  • shallow dishes
  • google eye
  • glue


  1. Cut the rim off a paper plate and cut the center in half.
  2. Use one half to cut a small simple head, tail, and legs.
  3. Put green and purple paint in dishes. Paint the half circle green with child's fingers and paint head, tail, and legs purple. Dip the end of a toilet paper roll in purple paint and stamp onto the turtle's shell. Allow everything to dry.
  4. Glue pieces onto the back of the turtle. Glue a google eye on the head.
