I’m sure kids will enjoy this Art project. Very easy to do but looks good, plus the materials needed are just the usual art materials we use. I’ll teach my nieces and nephews on how to make this, they’ll love this! Also a good practice for children on how they can make use of things like toilet paper tube into a simple craft.

You know what I used to love as a child? I’d dig through the recycling bin, take empty toilet paper and paper towel rolls, as well as egg cartons, empty sandwich bag boxes and tape, and make buildings. A cardboard Taj Mahal sat in my room for almost a year because I was so proud of it. Kids can be so creative, and you can use pretty much anything to keep them entertained. Don’t underestimate the use of a simple egg carton as a toy!

This is a great project for children. You are teaching them to recycle which I love, and as they are doing the octopuses legs you are teaching them about counting. The octopus is very cute as well and children can get creative by decorating it.
