Paper Bag Octopus Craft
Here’s what you need to make this Paper Bag Octopus Craft:
- Paper bag
- Pink Craft Paint
- Paint Brush
- Scrap paper or newspaper
- Googly Eyes
Open the paper bag and paint each side pink. We stood our bag up over a plastic bottle to make it easier to paint.
Crumple up scrap paper into a ball. Drop the paper ball inside the bag.
Gather up the bag under the bag and tie a piece of yarn tightly around it to hold the paper ball in the bottom of the bag.
Cut the paper bag into strips. You now have the octopus head and tentacles!
Glue the googly eyes on and draw a smile.
You can also make an octopus using toilet paper rolls for a fun and easy craft!
