T Is for Turtle Paper Plate Craft

I love making crafts with paper plates with my kiddos. Last spring during a preschool lesson on the letter T, my daughter and I made an adorable paper plate turtle craft together.



  1. Tear or cut some green paper into small pieces.
  2. Glue the torn paper pieces on the bottom of the paper plate.
  3. Cut some green paper into one small, four medium, and one large elongated semi-circles.
  4. Glue the tail, legs, and head onto the paper plate.
  5. Glue two wiggle eyes onto the head.
