To make this craft project you will need a Styrofoam cup, four colorful pipe cleaners,
scissors, colored construction paper, tape, colored cotton balls, and glue.
To begin take your Styrofoam cup and flip it upside down. Thread the four pipe cleaners through the cup just above the rim to create 8 great octopus legs. Bend and curve them to give your octopus some great sea legs!
Now you are ready to decorate your octopus. Cover him with color! Add colored cotton ball eyes, colorful shapes and designs to the rest of the octopus's body. Let your incredibly easy to make octopus dry and place him someplace special.
