Next, glue the cheeks outside and below the eyes.

Use a dark orange marker to draw spots on the top of the octopus’s head.

Take your child’s handprints and cut the thumb off of one of them. Arrange the hands so the fingers are pointing down and slightly overlap them.

You’ll want the hand without the thumb to be on top of the other hand. Glue the hands together.
