We first did this toilet paper roll octopus back in 2010 with the elder brother.

Today we did the same with the little brother but skipped the painting part so it is not too lengthy.

1 pcs coloured foam
2 pcs googly eyes
Hole punch
Glue

Watch this video on how your toddler can make an octopus out of a toilet paper roll. If you intend to use kitchen roll, you’ll have to cut it short accordingly.
