First things first - cut your tissue paper into squares. Set aside till later.
Out of your construction paper, cut out 4 legs, 1 head and 1 tail for the turtle.
Next slather a good amount of glue on your paper plate. Use a foam paint brush to really cover the paper plate in glue.
Now ask your child to place the tissue paper squares on the paper plate, until it's completely covered.
When they are done with the tissue paper, it's time for the final steps! To finish off the paper plate turtle craft - staple the construction paper pieces in the designated spots to give the turtle life.
Add any other embellishments you see fit.
And that's it! Allow your turtle piece to dry completely and then display it proudly for ALL to see!
