This is a good way to incorporate sensory play and literacy. Print out some clip art photos and have the children mold the play dough around the turtle shells and letters.
Print out a picture of a turtle. Label the turtle. Make labels of the body parts of the turtle. Encourage the children to put the correct body part label near the body part on the turtle.
This fun turtle has lots of fact to help you learn. Made out of two paper plates, a brad, construction paper, and string. Paint the two paper plates, after they have dried connect them with the brad. You can then attach paper legs to the center brad with some string. Next write down some cool facts about turtles on the legs and head. Need some facts? Try some of these facts from Animal Planet.
This picture may look like the ocean to you, but kids will have fun just creating with the materials.
