What You Need:

  • 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.

  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.

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!
