Here we have another great idea of how to creatively use your children’s leisure time, and make a super octopus from toilet paper rolls as a paper hanging decoration. Make a few of them, and you'll have the whole octopus family in your room!
Material Needed: Toilet paper rolls, colorful papers, perforator, scissors, colorful cottons, markers or crayons.
Instructions: First of all, wrap the toilet paper roll in colored paper. The color of paper depends on the color of your octopus. Cut a wider strip out of colored paper. On one side, fold the paper ends together and glue them. You have just made a head. Then, make small holes with a perforator from the bottom side. After that, cut several longer pieces of cotton, which you need to pass through the holes. Those will be tentacles. Then, draw eyes and patterns on the body with crayons or markers. Carefully make a little hole with scissors on the head, through which you will pass the cotton thread. Make a bigger knot inside so that cotton will not get loose. Your octopus is ready!
You can hang such a paper octopus somewhere in the apartment or your room. Whenever you pass by, the octopus will wave their tentacles and undulate in the air. Creative activities for children are simply great and will playfully fill the free time of your kids. Have fun!
