Cut out the templates and trace the letter O and the octopus tentacles onto card stock.
Cut out the letter O and the octopus tentacles.
Glue the letter O and the octopus tentacles onto a full sheet of card stock (we used green, but you can use any color you like) to form an octopus.
Use a hole punch to punch out 40-50 tiny dots from card stock (we used purple).
Glue 6-10 dots onto each tentacle to form suction cups.
Affix two googly eyes to the top of the O.
