To make a Turtle costume, you will need:
- 1 pair of green sweats
- an old bicycle helmet
- 2 shades of green paint (I used acrylic paint)
- a couple of sponge paint brushes
To start, make what will be the turtle shell by painting the entire old helmet the lighter shade of green paint. Once the paint has dried, go back and paint "spots" all over the helmet with the darker shade. Start by painting the air vents, and then fill in excess space strategically. Your painted helmet should look similar this.
Finally, dress the child in the green sweats. Put the turtle shell (or helmet) on the child's back, and then admire the end result.
