Smartie Octopus

Our last ocean craft was a very simple one, which I'm sure you've seen before. I printed out a coloring sheet of an octopus onto colored card stock. I cut them out and let the kids glue Smarties candy to the arms to make suckers.
Most kids just added one to each arm, but some glued on more.

I added them to our wall with our other ocean crafts we made this week. It actually took up three walls, but here is the main one with the title Commotion in the Ocean:
And then we had an ocean "quiz" and I gave each child a Smartie when they answered the question correctly!

Fun Fact: Although only the size of a snail, the blue-ringed octopus is one of the deadliest creatures in the sea.
