Father's Day Craft
Paper Plate Turtle
"Dad, I didn't SHELL out much this Father's day, but I still love you!"
- two uncoated
- paper plates
- a sheet of construction paper
- optional google eyes for head
Divide the bottom side of an uncoated paper plate into squares or hexagons with a crayon. Color each square. Cut out a head, a tail, and four legs from construction paper. Tape these to the top of a second paper plate. Glue the two plates together so the tops of each plate are to the inside.
Place a baggy with a treat (cookies, candy, nuts, etc.) for dad between the plates before gluing together the plates. Children who are old enough can write a thank you note to their fathers on the bottom. It can say something like: "Dad I didn't SHELL out much for Father's Day but I still love you."
