First, trace your child’s handprint on green construction paper or cardstock. I like to use a pencil, so the markings are light. Cut out the handprint using a pair of scissors. Also, cut out a piece to act as the head of the turtle.
Glue the buttons onto the palm portion of the handprint. I suggest using liquid glue to make things stick better. This will serve as the turtle shell.
Attach the head using tape or a glue stick. Glue on a googly eye and use a black marker to draw a smile.
