Turtle Time! (Printable Puppets)

Last time I was on the beach down at Padre Island, all the baby sea turtles were hatching. This summer we'll have an adventure following two little sea turtles in the Literature Live! puppet show, "Tortuga Del Mar"

Don't wait for summer to have some turtle fun, though.  Let's celebrate tortuguita birthdays this month with our printable puppet!

First, cut out your turtle and the strap.

Then, on the shell edges, snip along the dotted lines, overlap the cut edges, and tape to the inside of the shell to make the shell rounded.

Tape hand strap to inside of turtle shell and slip your new turtle puppet on!

Now, you can use your new puppet to sing this King County Library song about the turtle "Tiny Tim," and then take your new friend to the library to check out our books on turtles, snakes and alligators.
