After playing with our color and count sheets all week last week, Little Miss was SO excited to open up her daily pack for Mother Goose Time and see an octopus project.
There is something magical about an octopus. The way they move, how big they can get, how smart they are- they are just fascinating to kids and grown-ups alike!
We started the day by watching a couple videos:
Then, we got started on some activities! First, we did a simple counting activity. We practiced counting to eight, and Little Miss got some fine motor practice lining up the tokens on the octopus legs.
Then, we got started on a craft. This octopus craft is SO easy and is just adorable. All you need is a piece of paper, some wiggle eyes, and those reinforcement stickers you use for papers in a binder. Draw 8 legs on the bottom half of the paper, let your child stick on the “octopus suction cups,” add eyes, color, and then cut. Lastly, add a string, so your child can make their octopus “swim” through the air!
