Toilet Paper Roll Octopus
I saw this craft a long time ago and thought it would be good to do with Hasan. It's pretty simple and I've seen it on numerous websites. The hardest thing for Hasan was waiting for the paint to dry. We completed it in two days because Bilal woke up early from his nap after Hasan was done painting.
1 toilet paper roll
Some toilet paper
Roll up the toilet paper in a ball and push up to the top of the toilet paper roll. This will form the top of the head of the octopus. Paint the toilet paper roll including the toilet paper popping up from the top.
Once the paint is dry, make lines marking out 8 legs. Cut along the lines. Using a marker, roll up each leg. Glue on googly eyes. Draw nose and mouth. You can do more additional decorating if you like.
