Octopus Love Activity

Octopi aren't the most cute or cuddly creatures, but they deserve love too! Let your child share her love on the legs of a paper octopus. 

What You Need:

  • Construction paper (red, pink, and whatever other colors you desire!)
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Glue
  • Markers

What You Do:

  1. Draw a octopus head for your child and help her cut it out
  2. Draw a face on the octopus using the markers. It can be realistic or more like a cartoon, whatever she wants.
  3. Have her use the pencil to draw 8 octopus legs. 
  4. Help her cut out the 8 legs.
  5. Glue the legs to the back of the octopus's head.
  6. Have your child draw 8 hearts on red paper. 
  7. Assist her in cutting out the hearts.
  8. Ask your child to thing of a few different people and things that she love. Lightly write out her responses, one in each heart. Let your child trace over your writing with a marker.
  9. Help her glue one heart to each leg. 

You can post this octopus of love on the refrigerator or display it prominently in your child's room as a reminder of everything she loves about life!
