Toddler Crafts: Making Octopus with Toilet Paper Roll & Pom Poms

I cut a few TP rolls for my tiny tot- and while teaching him "they have 8 arms!" He duly counted em and said "but this ones got 9 arms mama!"

Umm.. Oops!

This activity made me realize what a long way he has come w.r.t dexterity. The way he diligently held the roll while painting all sides.........

..... dotted and lined the glue, and pain stakingly pasted the teeny tiny pom poms!

Almost done!

Until later! Stay in touch!
