Creative Saturdays – Paper Plate (Styrofoam) Tadeo Turtle
This week I will be teaching Sunday School at a neighbouring church. I will read Tadeo Turtle, do some singing and a little storytelling. We will be making the paper plate Tadeo.
There are many ways to make a paper plate turtle.
Today I am using the following materials:
- two small styrofoam plates (paper plates are great too)
- tissue paper of a variety of colours (get reds, yellows, purples, greens,)
- construction paper or card stock paper (any colour)
- white glue
- googly eyes
- crayons or markers or paint
Cut the tissue paper. I didn’t have many colours on hand but these seemed to work fine. I cut it in squares but it doesn’t matter. Cut any shapes you want.
Place the tissue paper one piece at a time on the shell. Overlap. Cover the whole shell.
Cut out the head, 4 legs, and a tail.
Colour the head, legs and tail.
Staple the appendages to the bottom shell. Add googly eyes.
Place the top shell over the bottom shell and staple the turtle together. Mark the toes on each foot.
Here is another turtle that I made while attending “Turtle Day” at an art gallery. Let the children’s imagination take over for shapes, colour and detail.
