The sea turtle painting is a great addition to the ocean activities on the site.

There are several sea turtle books that we love. They are Sea Turtles by Gail Gibbons, Follow the Moon Home: A Tale of One Idea, Twenty Kids, and a Hundred Sea Turtles, and National Geographic Readers: Sea Turtles.

We always try and pick a book to go with our activities. It makes it mean so much more when we do this. We love the Gail Gibbons books. So if you had to pick one go with it!

How we made our Swimming Turtle Painting

First, we started by painting the whole paper lightly with water. We used large brushes to do this. It helps the watercolor paint spread easier.

Then we used watercolor and painting the whole background blue. I like using watercolors for the background because it dries faster than paint.

Then we placed the sea turtle cookie cutter on the paper. We used q-tips to paint inside the turtle. You paint with one hand and hold the cookie cutter in place with the other hand.
