I love it when we find an activity the kids want to do over and over! My seven year-old was hooked on our super simple shell craft; she designed shells for several days. Her favorites? These awesome Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle inspired seashells!
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Craft
This craft was completely my 8 year-old’s idea. To create your own seashell ninja turtles you will need plain white clam shells and permanent markers.
For each TMNT you wish to make, first outline all the details with a black permanent marker. This is important so the eye area doesn’t get colored!
Then color each face mask the appropriate color: red, purple, orange, or blue. Finally, color the rest of the turtle green.
My daughter opted to make Raphael angry — leaving his eyes white like the cartoon often does. (I love that detail!)
Check out Michaelangelo’s big smile!
Have a TMNT fan?
This simple shell craft is sure to be a hit! (And now they’ll be able to REALLY have that “hero in a half shell!”
