Octopus Craft

Cheyanne and I made this cute Octopus. It was super easy. It would be a great project to go along with an octopus book or under the sea unit.

We used: Paper plate, balloon, a permanent marker, paint and scissors.

Paint the paper plate.

Allow to dry.

Decorate the balloon with permanent marker.

We did glue on wiggly eyes.

Cut out legs and a small hole in the center of the plate.

Put the tie part of the balloon through the hole in the center of the plate.

OMGoodness! That looks like one of my son's Pokemon characters! We're into Pokemon. I was going to buy balloon today to do paper mache. Now I do what to do with the leftover balloons. Too cute!
