While Papa Was Away

Last weekend, the hubby was away on a business trip. Leaving me with the kids. :( Sad because we all missed him and we cannot celebrate Father's Day with him. But I've already planned out some activities for the kids. Initially some activities involved going to the playground but that had to be cancelled since the haze was very bad over the weekend.

I guess it's natural to do an art and craft activity. What more than art and craft since kids enjoy them right? We finished off doing a tortoise craft we did halfway because we ran out of green paint! I didn't follow exactly but I got the idea from Disney Junior's website. Here's the steps to do a tortoise!


Draw the tortoise's head, tail and legs on a paper plate. Then cut the shapes out. Stick them on another paper plate.

Put some glue around the sides of the paper plate. Then we stick another paper plate on top so that the head, tail and lets are pressed in between the two paper plates. You can use a paper bowl on top if you want to make the tortoise bulkier. But since we don't have a paper bowl, we just settled with a paper plate instead. Then paint the tortoise green. Use a sponge to make streaks of yellow paint on top of the green paint. Make sure the green paint is fully dry. Otherwise, you can't really see the yellow effect just like mine. Haha.

Paste googlie eyes on the head of the tortoise. Since we don't have glitter, we just use glitter glue to make spots on the body and tail. Red glitter glue for the body and purple glitter glue for the tail. Tada! Elizabeth can't wait to show her papa.
