The second one doesn't look like a scute to me.  Maybe @Shellseeker can ID the first one.

My favorite things about fossil hunting: getting out of my own head, getting into nature and, if I’m lucky, finding some cool souvenirs.

My take is similar.  To identify down to a genus, requires differentiating feature of Armadillo,  Glyptodon,  Turtle, Tortoise,  etc These 2 small examples seems to lack any of those features. 

Your 1st one might be any of those,  with a slight preference to turtle.  The 2nd might be an osteoderm.
