Making an Egg Carton Octopus - green glitter painted octopus with googly eyesMake this cute octopus from an egg carton. This octopus can be used as a bookmark for a book and for a puppet show. My daughter likes playing with carton animals and uses her books as the background for a puppet show.

Total Time: 15 minutes + paint dry time

Supplies:

  • egg carton
  • scissors
  • tape
  • yarn
  • Sharpie
  • googly eyes
  • paint
  • paint brush

Steps:

  1. An octopus has 6 arms and 2 legs. I am unsure why, but I tied 6 yarn pieces and knotted them together. You can go as many as you would like or 8 (it's up to you since this is just for play pretend).
  2. Making an Egg Carton Octopus - tie 6-8 pieces of yarn together
     
  3. Cut out a section of an egg carton and paint it your desired color. Allow to dry. I made (2) octopuses, one with the eyes drawn on with a Sharpie and one with googly eyes glued on.
