Directions to make a Turtle Handprint
1. Fold over a piece of green cardstock.
Trace the hand so that the thumb is along the folded part.
2. Cut out the handprint. You should now have a handprint card that opens up.
3. Cut out a circle piece of bubble wrap. You can use a bowl or container to trace a circle shape from your bubble wrap and then cut it out.
4. Paint the bubble wrap green and then glue to the front of your card.
5. Cut out an oval shape for the turtle’s head. Glue to the thumb on your card.
6. Glue on large googly eyes to the top of the turtle’s face.
7. Add a smiley face with a black marker.
8. Write a special message inside your card! Write “You’re turtle-ly cool Dad” Or “I turtle-ly love you”!
Your card is finished! We love how easy this one is to make. We especially love that this craft uses only a few supplies.
