I’m finally back after a seemingly long hiatus from the Summer Bucket of FUN! It’s been a bit chaotic around these parts since we’ve been having fun with visiting family and daily swimming lessons now that they’ve gone back home!

Today’s Handprint Octopus Craft is a great activity for documenting hand size. It’s always fun to look back to see how big we’ve grown!

Here’s how to make the Handprint Octopus Craft:

SUPPLIES NEEDED:
