Octopus Puppet

With no mouth to move, this purple octopus doesn't have much to say. But it's still ready for action, thanks to its eight shapely legs that can be twirled about.

What You Need:

This fantastic octopus is a kid favorite.
  • Socks
  • Batting
  • Sewing machine
  • Sequins

Instructions:

1. Cut eight equal-size slits in two socks.

2. Cut the strips off one sock and sew them to the back side of the legs on the second sock, forming tubes, leaving an opening. Stuff the legs with batting; sew closed.

3. Embellish the legs with sequins and add big sequin eyes to create an expressive face.
