DIY Socktopus

I don’t like being bored. I’m lucky because Mommy can usually come up with something to do. I saw cute octopus puppets made on a TV show, so mom said we could make some too. They were really easy to make, but I needed help with the cutting part for the legs or whatever they are called when they’re on an octopus. That part made me mad because I like to do it all by myself. These are fun to play with and even my kitty likes them. There weren’t many steps to making them but my favorite part was when I had to go outside and shake, shake , shake to get all the fuzzies off them.

Here is how we made them:

Start with a plastic shopping bag, a dollar store sock of your choice, and some ribbon or an elastic.

Bunch your bag into a ball then stuff it into the toe of the sock. Tie it off with your ribbon or elastic, then trim if necessary.

Trim the bottom 2″ or so of the sock to use as scraps.
Then cut the remaining into 8 tentacles

use the scraps to create your own funky looking eyes! We cut out circles of different colours and glued them together

Me- Gluing the eyes together

Isn’t he soooo cute?!

I just love them! Hope you can make some too! Oh yeah, my Mom told me to mention that this craft cost only $2.00 for two pairs of socks. We had everything else on hand. I’d love to see what your’s look like! Send me a message with your pictures!
