Rock Turtle

 

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. Your polished stones are nice 😉 But oh the hours my brother and I spent harvesting and drying the proper ones from the Minnesota lake then painting them with our ‘Prang’ water paint kits. Not as pretty as these but was the only safe paint for kids 60 yrs ago 😉
