MORE THAN A CRAFT:
Activity 1: Have child fill up octopus with water by squeezing underwater and release the water into a new container. Repeat until container is filled. Then have them reverse the water back into the original container by way of octopus again!
Activity 2: Engage in basic pretend play with the octopus. Give it a name, special personality traits etc.
Activity 3: Add to underwater themed sensory bin.
Activity 4: Octopus loves to clean! What can you clean around the house together? (Or set aside some dirty toys to 'clean')
