This post was inspired by Kathryn at Fun With Friends at Storytime!
Kathryn not only made these amazing felt turtles, but she also wrote a rhyme to go with them. Rather than re-print her work, visit her Google Doc to see the rhyme.
To make Kathryn’s turtles, I printed off a picture to get the idea of how the shell and turtle would work. I played around with colors and wound up choosing a gold piece of felt as the shell even though Kathryn’s turtles have an olive green shell and a tan belly. (My turtles are lacking their bellies!)
I will be using these at a family storytime this spring — frogs and turtles!
