Use the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to create a t-shirt design with Turtle Power.
Break out your nunchakus and katanas (though colored pencils and crayons might be more effective) and pay tribute to these heroes in a half-shell. Take inspiration from their rat sensei Splinter, their armored archenemy Shredder, or any other friends or foes of these totally tubular Turtles for your radical design.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is a classic, global property, which first debuted as a successful comic book series and then became a hit animated TV show, a live-action television series, and later spawned four blockbuster theatrical releases. The franchise has been delighting fans around the world for almost 30 years. Nickelodeon’s recently re-vamped CG-animated television series follows the four mutant teenage Turtles—Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello, and Michelangelo—trained in the art of ninjutsu by their mutant rat sensei, Master Splinter, who teaches the brothers to battle evil from the New York City sewers.
