Turtle Crossing


Thank you for visiting me during the A to Z Challenge! I hope you'll join me throughout the month of April. I'll be exploring animal crafts with Sassy Pants for each letter of the alphabet. Not only that, but I'll be sharing with you some interesting facts about each animal. (Just to showcase what a nerdy homeschooling mama I am. LOL)

T is for Turtle

I actually like turtles. They're slower than I am, and they don't have the potential to eat me or bite me with some sort of deadly venom.

Here are some interesting facts about turtles:
  • Turtles have no teeth.
  • Even though they don't have vocal chords, they can make sounds.
  • Some turtles can live up to 150 years.
  • Some turtles can dive 3000 feet below the water's surface.
  • Airplanes in America collide with an average of 4 turtles a year on runways. 

Bottle Top Turtle
Supplies:
Bottle top
2 Q-tips
Popsicle stick
Marker
Card stock
Glue

Cut a circle the same size as the bottle top out of the card stock. Cut Q-tips and popsicle stick in half. Use glue to attach Q-tips for feet and popsicle stick for a head to card stock circle.

Use glue to attach circle to bottle top.
