Create your very own sea turtle pet with this Seashell Sea Turtle craft. In a few easy steps this child friendly craft yields adorable sea turtles that crafters are certain to love. Create one or a family of sea turtles using different sized shells. We used the shells from purchased stuffed clams and we washed them in the dishwasher and put them in the craft closet and we are so glad that we did. Shells can also be found on the beach or in your local craft store.
