Fine Motor Octopus Craft

For your funky fingers challenge this week can you make an octopus? 

You will need the following; 

- a paper plate - decorated however you like to create an octopus face 

- wool or string

- cut up coloured straws 


So once your paper plate is decorated, you need to make some holes in the bottom of the plate, how many legs does an octopus have? 

Then thread some wool or string through the holes, ask your grown up to tie a know at the end of each string as that is a tricky part! 


Now, for the fun bit, threading different coloured straws on each of the pieces of string. How colourful can you make your octopus' legs? 

Remember to use your pinchy fingers! 

Would love to see your creations on Tapestry.
