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:
- Construction paper
- Googly Eyes
- Take a sheet of blue construction paper, set aside
- Grab a sheet of white (or light colored) construction paper
- Put paint all over kids’ hands
- Press down on the paper with painted hands making hand prints. (You may want to make quite a few and pick the best looking ones)
- Cut out the hand prints
- Glue hand prints on the blue construction paper with fingers pointing down to resemble octopuses
- Decorate with googly eyes
- Optional: cut out squiggly pieces of paper to create seaweed, glue to bottom of blue paper
