Once Upon a Book ~ Scoot...POND week 4


My oldest is called Turtle so I have a special place in my heart for turtles! :)

After reading Scoot! by Cathryn Falwell have fun making and playing turtle games!

Egg Carton Turtles:


  • Paper egg carton cups
  • Green Paint
  • Paintbrushes
  • Foam turtles (use this template, I used the smaller turtle)
  • Glue

To Make:

  • Paint your egg cups green
  • Set aside to dry
  • Cut out the smallest turtle pattern from the printout
  • Glue to the bottom of egg cup
  • Now add to your pond with some glue after the shell is dry!
Turtle Turtle Action Play: (from

Turtle Turtle
Tune: “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star”

Turtle, turtle moves so slow,

Crawling, crawling, watch him go.

At the pond he looks around,

See his head move up and down.

Turtle, turtle wants to swim,

Now he slides and dives right in!

Turtle Path:


  • Masking Tape

To Make:

  • Make a path on the carpet with masking tape
  • Have your LO get on all 4's to crawl like a turtle

Added Bonus:

  • Make a Paper Turtle print out pages 3, 4 and/or 5 and let LO color you can cut and glue it where it says and your LO will have a cute paper turtle!
