Homemade DIY Turtle Costume

green sweatsuit (hooded is optional)
2 piece green or light brown poster board
craft paint or thick markers
hot glue
Cut one piece of the poster board into a large oval shell. Draw large wobbly circles on shell. Go over outline with markers or paint to accentuate. Cut two long, fairly thick strips (between one and two inches depending on the size of the child) from the second piece of posterboard the full length of the board. Using hot glue, attach these strips to the top of the back side of the shell, then run over child’s shoulders as straps. Hot glue straps in place. Leave enough room for “give” so child can move his/her arms without tearing or breaking the straps.
