Summer would not be summer in our house without at least one hiking adventure. And the best part of hiking is all the creatures and animals we can discover. Turtles, spiders, foxes and more. Here is a fun potato masher craft to make cute turtles, a perfect summertime craft!

Easy Directions to Make a Potato Masher Turtle
Gather your supplies. Using the scissors cut four legs for each turtle you will make out of the green paper. Also cut out a tail and head from the green construction paper.
Dip the potato masher into the green paint (make sure the entire surface is covered in paint so that it stamps a full circle) and stamp it three times on the blue construction paper to make three turtles.
Glue on the turtles’ legs, tails and head.
Glue on googly eyes on to the head of the turtle.
This was a fun and easy craft to make with my almost four year old!
