Magic Marker Monday: Turtle

Ben, age 6, brought this home from school. Simple, yet so very cute: Styrofoam bowl painted green for the shell with tissue paper glued on top for effect. Foam "paper" cut in shape of legs and head, with two googley eyes.

Check out other works of art at Magic Marker Monday.


  1. Oh my word! How cute is that?!? Tell Ben thank you, thank you, thank you for starting off my Monday with such a wonderful something to smile about! :D Fabulous work, Ben!

  2. Thanks - we think it's cute too! My middle son has been looking at it all day, thinking about how he can make one!

  3. That is very cute! How do these teachers come up with all this stuff?

  4. Wow - I'm sure you told Ben he did a fantastic job already but that's amazingly cute! I've actually seen this craft idea once before but not nearly as well done.
