How to make a Turtle Craft?

Children always like craft. If they find a simple craft which they can make themselves without the help of the parents they will love it. Read this article to know a simple cardboard craft to make a turtle.

Today is 23rd May and this day is celebrated as World Turtle Day each year. In school children make turtle drawing and sometimes they wear green turtle dress and perform at the stage to make awareness among children about turtles. Sometimes school also organise a visit to National Parks and Sanctuaries for turtle search where children search and see the turtle. On this day you can wear a turtle print T-shirt also. As you are staying at your home these days, to celebrate this day, you can make a turtle craft.
