Rock Turtle

a Rafflecopter giveaway

A young friend came over and she wanted to make a turtle.

 

We started checking out all the stones I had tucked away awaiting a project.

I was thinking of putting it in this plastic tray and making like a turtle pond for it….

Well, she wanted to put it in her yard…..she won…of course…love kids! We played around with the rocks, making a turtle. This is what we came up with:

So…we painted the turtle with acrylic paint. Then she put the eyes on with a black marker. She did the head and feet, I did the body with darker green sharpie.

I think it came out cute! She is so happy! It was so cute when she was showing it to her mommy! (We lost the tail) 😦

  1. Very cute. I’ll have to do this with my grandsons. We have the rocks already from making love rocks which they call “heart rocks” so we can easily do this. I would actually leave the rocks unpainted because they’re so pretty and look like the texture is so wonderful. I’m sure the boys will want to paint theirs, though.
