I’m always looking for ways to reuse everyday items. Sometimes I turn them into inexpensive crafts for the kids. We made this cute upcycled turtle craft using a Chick-fil-a containers. The larger turtle is made from a soup container and the smaller turtle is made from a small fruit cup container. The head and legs are made from construction paper. I’ll go into detail about the steps and share my template below, so keep reading!

Upcycled Turtle Craft

STEP 1 – Get your Materials
Eat some yummy soup or a fruit cup at Chick-Fil-A. Then, save and wash your container. You’ll also need some construction paper, a glue stick, and paint. We used acrylic paint. You can optionally use jewels or other small round eyes.

STEP 2 – Paint
Paint your container green (or any color!) and wait for it to dry.

STEP 3 – Cut
Cut out a head and legs from construction paper. You can download the template I created for the head and legs here. You’ll also want to cut some squares out for the shell. You could also be creative and use a variety of shapes.

STEP 4 – Assemble
Place the head and legs over the edge of the lid. Snap the container onto the lid to hold the pieces in place.

STEP 5 – Glue
Glue the spots on the shell.

We added some self adhesive jewels for eyes.

I hope you enjoy making this upcycled turtle craft with your little ones! The Chick-fil-A Mom’s Panel was asked to come up with some fun ideas for upcycling their soup containers. You can find more great ideas by searching the hashtag #ChickfilamomsDIY
