Turn a bottle cap into a tiny turtle!
What You Need
- 2 beads or peppercorns
- 1 plastic bottle cap (from milk or juice jug)
- 1 piece of green construction paper
- 2 cotton-tip swabs
- 1 craft stick
- Green paint
What You Do
- Paint Bottle Cap
Paint the outside of the bottle cap green. (This will be the turtle’s shell.)
- Cut Out a Green Circle
Cut out a green paper circle. Make it just large enough to cover the bottom of the bottle cap.
- Cut Out Tail
Cut out a green paper tail.
- Make the Turtle’s Legs
Paint two cotton-tip swabs green. Break or cut each swab in half. (These will be the turtle’s four legs.)
- Make the Turtle’s Head
Snap off an end of the ice cream stick for the head.
- Assemble the Turtle
- Place the head, legs, and tail in the position shown in the picture. Glue them to the rim of the bottle cap.
- Put glue around the rim of the cap and stick on the green circle so that the head, legs, and tail poke out of the turtle’s shell.
- Add the Eyes
Glue on peppercorns or beads for eyes.
