Rock Turtles













Assalm alykom:

While studying reptiles with my 5 year old daughter, We made these rock turtles. Here is how we did it:

Materials:

  • Small round smooth rocks
  • Card stock paper
  • Acrylic paint
  • Markers
  • Clear nail polish
  • Glue

Directions:

  • Clean the rocks and paint the top side and let dry
  • Once it is dry paint the bottom side of the rock
  • Once it is dry go back to the top and paint a design for the shell
  • Cut out the shape of the head and feet and color with markers
  • once the paint is dry apply to the rock clear nail polish to seal the paint.
  • Once the nail polish dries glue the feet and the head on the underside of the turtle.
