Clay turtle with diamond shell


Craft supplies

Air dry clay – orange and green

Couple wiggle eyes (oval)

Shaped gemstones

Plastic knife


With orange clay: roll the ball, put it on the table surface and push a little bit (bottom part must be flat)

With green clay: Roll 1 big “sausage” for head, 4 medium “sausages” for legs, 1 long skinny “sausage” for shell frame and 1 tiny-tiny one for tail

Stick all the parts together, pull the head up so your turtle looks lively 🙂

Push eyes into place, push diamonds into the shell

Make “toes” and mouth by gently pressing plastic knife into clay

Invent a name for your turtle! 🙂
