My kids are forever obsessed with making perler bead projects. I made these easy mermaid perler bead patterns and knew that they needed some friends. As a child, my favorite animal was a sea turtle (I know, random), so I designed a little turtle perler bead pattern for my kids to make. Isn’t he cute?!
This little guy is really easy to make and only requires a square pegboard. You can use a small board for him, but his mermaid friends will need a larger one.

To make this perler bead turtle, you’ll need:
- easy turtle perler bead pattern (click the link at the bottom of this post to get them)
- perler beads – We have this big bucket of beads.
- perler bead tray – You’ll need a large square like this one.
Along with the turtle perler bead pattern download, you can also get the mermaid perler bead patterns and the dolphin perler bead pattern. My kids had a great time making and playing with these, and I love that it keeps them busy over the summer! Glue magnets on the back, and the kids can put them up on the fridge. So fun!
If you choose “actual size” in the print options, and use a clear pegboard, you should be able to put the pattern under the pegboard, and it will line up with the pegs. That makes it much easier to follow the pattern, especially for young children.
