Bubble wrap octopus

Introduction

Constructing this make is a great way of helping your child to develop their hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills as they draw, cut, paint, decorate and stick a range of materials together to create the octopus. They can experiment with different colours, shapes and textures along the way. It's a complicated task so you'll need to be on hand throughout to provide help and encouragement.

How to extend the magic

Grab some leftover bubble wrap and get popping together! Your child will love squishing the wrap and trying to burst the air bubbles. Plus, it's fun for grown-ups too (not to mention a very good stressbuster!).
