Alphabet Wall: Making…O for Octopus
It’s been a long time since we did sponge painting…so I decided to try it again. 🙂
Sorry, pics are slightly blurry/dreamy looking because this craft was done by the light of the setting sun…
You will need the following materials: A piece of cardboard, marker, sponge, paints, scissors, glue, crepe paper.
1. On the cardboard, draw a block letter O with the marker.
2. Mix the paints, dip the sponge in and go! Follow the shape of the O or just cover the whole piece of cardboard, it doesn’t matter. 🙂 Set aside to dry.
Took the opportunity to throw in a colour mixing lesson… 😉
3. Cut 8 strips of crepe paper for the octopus’s tentacles and set aside.
4. Once the painted O is dry, cut the O out.
5. Paste the tentacles on.
Don’t forget to draw or paste on some eyes, and you’re done!
