How to make Salt Dough Sea Shell Turtles with a group this summer!! We love working with both Salt Dough and sea shells. Combined they are just perfect! I love it when readers send in their Red Ted Art Kids Crafts – it is so fun to see your version of some of our classic makes! The lovely Keri from Miss B & Ivor did just that with these wonderful rainbow shell turtles!
I ADORE that she took our favourite Sea Shell Fridge Magnet turtles and Crabs and turned them into these fanatsic Salt Dough Turtles. Combining our Sea Shell Fridge Magnets with our Salt Dough Turtles. And making it classroom friendly!
Don’t they look great?

Let the kids make their fabulous Salt Dough Turtles. Add the shells to the back. To make the right shape for them. But you will glue them on later.
Let try fully.
