O is for Octopus and Omigosh

So, I found a cute octopus craft. I don’t know why I’ve been so stuck on doing an octopus, but I this is what I wanted:

I mean, isn’t that adorable? I knew it was going to be a little hard for a 2 year old, but still, I figured she’d be able to do part of it and then I could do the rest. Easy shmeasy.

Uh, yeah. Well, here’s what ours turned out like:

It took me like 30 minutes to do it and not even one of those legs is even. Does he even have 8 legs?

My daughter was not entertained and ended up measuring the cotton balls instead of making an octopus.

(However, right at this moment, she’s putting the octopus to sleep in the laundry basket. Complete with whispers and a blanket.)

So, next time I’m going to get a craft with a paper plate and a glue stick for goodness sakes.
