We picked up Yertle the Turtle to read from the library today. What could be cuter than an interactive activity of stacking turtles to go along with the theme? We collected a few basic household items and tried to reach the moon with our own tower of turtles. I have to say it was a huge hit!
How we did it:
- bottle caps
- googley eyes
- markers (optional)
Cut felt into turtle shaped pieces.
Tip: If you need help, take a pen or marker and draw a turtle shape on the felt. We referenced our book to help draw the turtle shape.
Add a face to your turtles with googly eyes or hand-drawn features.
Glue the bottle caps to the felt to finish the turtles.
Now that your turtles are ready, see how high they can stack before toppling over
