To make this turtle puppet:
1) Cut a paper plate in half.
2) Paint the paper plate yellow.
3) Use a cotton ball to add green dots to the turtle's shell, and allow to dry completely.
4) Cut a head, 4 legs and a tail from green construction paper, and tape to the back of the paper plate.
5) Tape a craft stick to the back of the turtle.
6) Glue on a googly eye, and draw on a mouth.
That's it! Isn't it a cute little craft?
After our craft, we did a little printing practice. If you want to practice printing the letter T with your little one, you can right-click on the picture below, save it to your computer, and print it.
Looking for more "letter T" crafts?
Try turning a "T" into a tree. Colour the trunk brown, and glue on scrunched up squares of tissue paper to create leaves.
This scrapbook paper turkey is another sweet and simple letter T craft. Cut a square of scrapbook paper, and glue it to a piece of cardstock. Add some heart feathers, a beak, and a heart wattle under the beak. Finish by gluing on a googly eye and drawing some feet. This would be a darling Thanksgiving craft too!
And how much fun is this paper towel roll train that stands up on its own? The children colour a train that is printed on cardstock and cut it out. Then, an adult makes it stand by cutting slits in pieces of a paper towel roll.
Adorable, right? Next up... the letter U.
