One of my favorite things about being a mom is enjoying shows and characters I grew up loving, with my children. Growing up as a teen in the 90’s Ninja Turtles were everywhere when I was a kid. So when my four children showed a love for them I was thrilled. This happens often with my childhood faves. It kind of lets me be a kid again, plus they think I am cool when I know a bit of what they are referring to when talking about these characters.
Recently my local radio station tweeted a pic of some Ninja Turtle ornaments someone had made. I knew I had to try these for myself. I am not super crafty so believe me when I say the skill level needed is very low. I ventured out to the dollar store and spent less than $5 to get what I needed.
Box of green bulbs (ornaments)
Ribbon (felt can be used)
Pack of Googly eyes
Cut ribbon to fit around bulb
Glue ribbon on (this is the turtles mask)
Glue on googly eyes
Hang on tree
The end result is a fun little Ninja Turtle ornament perfect for the tree or a topper for a gift. You can make an entire set of 12 for less than $5. Fun for little ones to help out with as well.
Is there a show or character you loved as a child that your children now love?
