I cut Darren's hair for the first time ever yesterday. To distract him from the horror of having me cut his hair (*wink*), I started a friendly debate about getting a pet.
I was hoping he might agree to a dog (he's TOTALLY a dog person... but they're a lot of work and he still isn't over the loss of Ruby, our yorki-poo/family pet of many years).
We can't really have cats because I'm allergic to them and my allergies seem to get worse the older I get.
He decided a turtle would be the answer... I don't really want a turtle. Stalemate!!!
Egg carton turtles are adorable though!
- egg carton cups
- small styromfoam ball(s)
- 2 or more googly eyes
- light and dark green paints
- 4 or more mini pom-poms
- Take your egg carton cup and paint it green with a different shade of green spots.
- Next, paint the small Styrofoam ball one shade of green and glue googly eyes to it.
- Lastly, glue the head to the egg carton cup, add pom-poms for feet, and you are done!
