I cut the paper four times, including on the fold, to make eight tentacles. Next, we stapled the seam together. The kids drew a face on their octopus.
They selected two colors of cereal and sorted a pile of each to start their first pattern.
We lined up the patterns first, then removed one at a time to glue it on.
Using the glue independently was a huge perk for them (and good work for those hand muscles)!
So much concentration and collaboration while sharing supplies!
I think they turned out pretty cute!
