Toilet Roll Octopus

This one's a cute one! Recycle your unwanted toilet paper rolls!


1. Toilet paper roll

2. Crayons or paint

3. Scissors

4. Glue or tape

5. Googly eyes

6. String

*Adults only when handling scissors!

At the bottom of one end, poke 8 holes with a hole puncher (or scissors). Cut 8 pieces of string and feed them through each hole. These are the tentacles. Using crayons or paint (I'm loving the crayola's paint on a stick), get your kiddo to decorate your octopus. Glue on or tape your google eyes. (Alternatively you can just draw on eyes). Cut slits at the top then fold over and tape- this is the head. Voila!
