This Letter O Octopus craft is one of our favorites. Using our provided template and some construction paper it is really easy to turn the letter O into an octopus. We made our Letter O Octopus orange to continue the "o" trend. We used a letter "o" stamp to add the suckers onto his tentacles which even further enhanced learning about the letter. Our daughter practiced making the sound the letter ´┐Żo' says the whole time she was stamping! Our orange Letter O octopus craft would make a wonderful ocean craft as well, but it is also a great letter of the week craft or simple alphabet craft for your little one to make.

What you'll need:

  • Letter O Octopus Template
  • Orange Construction paper
  • Letter O stamp (could use anything really, even a piece uncooked tubular pasta would work)
  • Stamp pad or paint
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Googly eyes
  • Black marker or crayon
How to make your letter O octopus craft:
  1. Print our template and cut out the pieces. Trace the letter o onto construction paper and cut it out, including cutting out and discarding the center piece.
  2. Trace the tentacle template onto orange paper and cut out eight tentacles total.
  3. Glue the tentacles to the back of the letter O.
  4. Flip the octopus over. Glue on his googly eyes and draw on his mouth.
  5. Use your stamper to stamp "o's" along each tentacle.
