This paper turtle craft really comes to life with a stuffed newspaper shell, paint and free printable template. No two turtles are the same. We used some traditional colors and patterns, but there are no limits or rules here. If you prefer that your sea turtle has a rainbow shell and a mohawk, then make it happen. If you want every fin to be a different color, go for it! Seriously, the only limit is your imagination with this fun animal craft.

This iguana craft is more than it appears at first glance. First of all, it uses one of my absolute favorite craft supplies...washi tape! Seriously, if you have not used washi tape in crafting before, it is life changing. I love it because it is, first of all, cheap. Plus it comes in every color and pattern you can image. Cheap and pretty...a winning combo in my opinion.
But beyond being fun to make, this lizard craft is also perfect for working on fine motor skills. The tearing, placing, moving and removing of the washi tape lends itself to using the refined tip pinch that we like to see children develop so that they can do things like hold a pencil better.
