Craft: Turtle


  • Green felt
  • Styrofoam ball (we used 2 1/2" balls), cut in half using a craft knife
  • Green paint
  • Green pom-pom (we used 1" pom poms)
  • Googly eyes
  • Glue
  • Glitter glue


Pre-cut balls in half and paint green. To help with painting, stick a skewer into the flat side of the half-ball, then hold the skewer while painting. Allow to dry (put skewers into a cup).

Pre-cut turtle bases. First trace around the half-ball, then draw four legs and a tail. Cut out the pattern, then trace onto felt (I used a Sharpie marker).

At the meeting, have the girls glue the flat part of the styrofoam half-ball onto the felt base. Glue on the head and eyes. Add detail using glitter glue or paint.
