This little octopus came out SO cute. Lorelai was cooing sweet words to it the entire time she was painting, which was pretty hysterical. (She needs a sibling… but let’s not go there now, haha.) This one was easy (as are all the crafts we do) and took very little time to do. Less than 5 minutes, not counting the drying time.
What We Used:
Toilet Paper Roll
- Cut 8 strips (tentacles) from the bottom of the paper roll to about halfway up the roll. Take your time and try to get all of the strips the same width.
- Once you’re finished cutting, press the roll down onto your work surface and curl up the ends a little.
- Paint the paper roll and allow to dry.
- Glue on the googly eyes.
- Draw on a smile.
See? Another easy craft! Don’t ever throw away paper rolls – they can be used for so many cute crafts! Don’t have one on hand? Check out LCL’s Printable Octopus Craft!
