Father's Day Craft-Paper Plate Turtle

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
  • crayons
  • tape
  • scissors
  • 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."
