Want to teach your kids about the letter O. Here is an easy craft that you can do at home. Most of the items needed for this craft may already be lying around.
You will need:
The inside of a toilet paper roll
Paper, construction or printer paper
As always, you may need to observe your children, and monitor the glue or the usage of the scissors. Better to be safe than sorry.
To start the craft:
First, remove all leftover paper from the outside of toilet paper roll.
Next, put glue all over the roll and put the top of the paper to the top of the roll, leaving half of the paper off the end. Cut any access off the side.
Now, put a piece of tape along the seam of the paper to the end of the roll.
Finally, cut 8 legs with the scissors.
The rest is up to the kids. They can draw eyes and decorate it with markers. If you have glitter or macaroni, they could glue them to the Octopus. Let the creativity flow.
The way I finished this craft was to have my son draw Os on a blue piece of paper, and let the Octopus swim in a sea of Os. You could also use this as a way to learn the number 8. Your Octopus could swim in a sea of 8s.
I hope you and your kids enjoy this craft as much as my family does.
