Turtle Leaf Puppet

The leaves are changing color and falling off of the trees. Time to make some leaf crafts with the kids. We used Virginia creeper leaves and a maple leaf to make this leaf turtle. Have fun with this fall leaf craft. This is a great craft for the letter T too!
Time to Complete : < 30 minutes
Difficulty : Easy
Submitted By : Crafty Shops Creative Staff

Instructions To Make A Turtle Leaf Puppet :
1. Bring your fall leaves in and wax them to maintain their shape and likeness. Lay them inside a sheet of wax paper. Fold the wax paper over and apply heat with an iron. A responsible adult that knows how to iron should do this part.
2. Use a Maple leaf for the shell of the turtle puppet. Cut or pull the points off to give the leaf shell a rounded look.
3. Make the legs for your leaf turtle. Pull the Virginia Creeper in half to make two legs. Repeat with another leaf.
4. To make the head of your turtle cut the top of the Virginia Creeper leave. It will be twice as thick as the legs, but not as long as the turtle legs.
5. Lay the legs and head on top of the Maple leaf turtle shell with Maple leaf at the bottom. When you determine spacing glue them in permanently into place.
6. Glue eyes onto the head.
7. Glue the craft stick to the body.
8. Add glitter dots to the shell of your turtle. Then sprinkle glitter onto it to jazz it up a bit.
