Depending on where you set your turtle, the ambient light available may be enough to trigger it to start flapping without a need for a flashlight.

You can change how sensitive your turtle is to light by changing the value in the if light level > 150 block of code. 

Have fun playing with your turtle! See what obstacles it can climb over, or experiment with other ways to trigger the motors to turn, such as sound, a button click, or vibration!

If you'd like to customize your turtle, color it with markers or add craft paper, glitter/sequins, feel free to get creative with the design!
