Here is an adorable paper plate turtle craft to have fun with your kids this summer. We are sure you will find all the supplies right at your home to make this cute sea animal.

This paper plate turtle is perfect to do with kids of all ages, especially preschoolers, kindergarteners, and elementary school kids. There is a lot of painting, gluing and cutting involved to give plenty of exercise for little hands.

We made some rectangles, trapezoids, and pentagons from a painted toilet paper roll to make the turtle shell design. What a fun way to learn shapes!

To make the turtle’s head, we have a free printable turtle craft template that you can download and use.

Our turtle’s shell is slightly raised in the middle which gives it a 3d look. This sea turtle craft is such a fun idea to add to your ocean theme.

Did you know turtles are one of the oldest animals in the world?
