10 Craft Ideas To Do With Ninja Turtles Coloring Pages

Here are 10 affordable, exciting, and creative craft ideas you can do with your completed coloring page!

10. Paper Dolls

To make paper dolls out of my Ninja Turtle illustrations – or play props, if you have boys sensitive to the use of the word “dolls”! – you’ll need cardstock.

You’re going to print out the figures you want to use onto the cardstock and then have your kids carefully color in the lines.

They’ll then cut out the figures, and voilà – they have sturdy playthings where they can use their imaginations and really have a lot of fun.

If they like, you can also glue large crafting sticks to the backs as handles for extra ease of holding the dolls.

9. Keychains

To make Ninja Turtle keychains, you will need shrink sheets, which you can find on Amazon for less than $10 a pack.

You’re going to print out the characters you want to use onto the shrink sheets and have your kids color them in with markers (this is important if you want the color to stay put!).

Then, they’ll cut them out and punch holes wherever they want the keychain accessories to attach.

You’ll then bake the shrink sheets per their instructions and wait for them to cool completely.

Once they’re ready, you can attach the keychain hardware and get ready for lots of compliments on your new accessories!

8. Book Covers

My Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles pictures can be turned into a super cool book cover in just a few steps.

First, you’ll need to assert your computer wizardry by copying/pasting the entire illustration you want to use from its original PDF into a word processor document that has been oriented to landscape.

Then, you’re going to center the picture on the right-hand side of the page, leaving about half an inch of margin all around.

Print that off and have your kids color it in.

Next, you’ll turn the page so that the picture is face-down and set your book on top of it, marking with a pencil where the top and bottom of the book lie.

Set the book aside and fold along the lines you just drew all the way along the paper.

By doing this, you’re creating flaps that you can use to slip the page onto the book’s cover.

7. Gift Bag Embellishments

Go to your local dollar store and pick up gift bags in black and green (it doesn’t matter the shade of green – they all work!).

You’ll then print out the illustrations you want to use and have your kids color them in.

They’ll cut out the figures (and anything in the background they want to use) and paste them into the gift bags, making sure the glue reaches all the way to the edge of the cut-outs.

6. Party Decorations

You can use my Ninja Turtle pictures as inexpensive party decorations and not break the bank on top of buying the cake, presents, renting out the venue, etc.

You can use the cut-outs as place settings, wall decorations or even print them onto shrink sheets and use them as cake or cupcake toppers.

String together some of the cut-outs and hang them over a doorway for fun bunting, or prop them up on the table for cool centerpieces.

The possibilities are endless!


To make bookmarks, you will need cardstock, onto which you will print the characters you want to use.

Have your kids color them in and cut them out. They can also paste them onto rectangles of cardstock or construction paper if they prefer their bookmarks to have straight lines.

You might want to resize the illustrations, too, before printing them so that they’ll fit inside your books!

4. Dioramas

Your kids can create fun vignettes of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – they’ll just need cardboard boxes and glue.

For starters, they’ll color in and cut out the characters they want to use (if you can print them out onto cardstock, that’s even better).

Leave about an inch of tabbed paper underneath each character’s feet and then fold that under.

You’ll turn the cardboard box onto its side (you can cut off the top if it makes reaching in easier) and paste the cut-outs into place.

Add a background, and you’re done!

3. Pins

You’ll make pins much in the same way you make keychains by using shrink sheets.

Print out the characters you want to use, have your kids color them in, and cut them out.

Bake per the instructions and wait for them to cool. Once they’re ready, you can then hot glue (or super glue) pins to the backs of the cut-outs.

2. Valentine’s Day Boxes

For this craft, you will need shoe boxes and construction paper.

You’re going to cover the shoe boxes in green construction paper, top and bottom. For the lid, you’ll cut out a small slit (to put the Valentines through).

Have your kids color in and cut out the character they want to use and paste him to the lid, off to the side, so it doesn’t get in the way of the slit.

1. Crowns/Headbands

You’ll need to cut construction paper into two-inch wide strips and connect them to each other, making a loop that will fit your kids’ heads.

Your children will then color in and cut out the characters they want, then paste them to the front of the “crown.”

They can then slip the band over their heads and play pretend Ninja Turtles!
