Have you ever been in an aquarium? What are your favorite creatures to see there? Our favorite is the “monsters of the deep” – the octopus.
They have eight tentacles and a bulbous head. And did you know they have three hearts and nine brains?
How awesome is that?
When threatened, they shoot an inky liquid from their bodies that confuses the attacker.

This way they have time to swim quickly.

They also change color and camouflage themselves around rocks in the ocean.
The octopuses we’re going to show you today are super small, super cheeky, and super easy to make.

They can’t hurt if you hold them, they don’t shoot ink liquid, and they smile a lot to bring brightness to your homes.

How to make an easy paper octopus craft

What do you need:
blue card stock
the scissors
colored papers
two wide eyes
glue
a circle puncher
black lining
pink color pencil
Let’s create!

Step by step instructions
Cut an 8×8 square from the blue card stock.

Using your scissors, cut lines 1 cm wide.

Be sure to leave 1cm of space at the end and not cut the card stock completely.
Start rolling the stripes to form the tentacles…
…until you get to the last one.

Put some glue on one end and close the circle.
Take the circle punch and punch a circle out of the colored paper.

Cut ¼ of this circle.

This will be the head.
