Paint Bottle Cap

Paint the outside of the bottle cap green. (This will be the turtle's shell.)

Cut Out a Green Circle

Cut out a green paper circle. Make it just large enough to cover the bottom of the bottle cap.

Cut Out Tail

Cut out a green paper tail.

Make the Turtle's Legs

Paint two cotton-tip swabs green. Break or cut each swab in half. (These will be the turtle's four legs.)

Make the Turtle's Head

Snap off an end of the ice cream stick for the head.

Assemble the Turtle
  • Place the head, legs, and tail in the position shown in the picture. Glue them to the rim of the bottle cap.
  • Put glue around the rim of the cap and stick on the green circle so that the head, legs, and tail poke out of the turtle's shell.
Add the Eyes

Glue on peppercorns or beads for eyes.
