Tickly Octopus is a story of a cute octopus who loves to tickle his friends. Its one of CJ's Favorite books and we have been reading it from when she was 2 1/2 years old. I have also blogged about Tickly octopus on my book blog - kidobook. Cj has a fascination to the under sea world and I had the book in our to-buy list. Finally we got it last week.
CJ's favorite page is the cover page-Octopus tickling the fishes. So we tried to create the image.
All you need is a Banana, Goldfish crackers, Blue play mat/Big Plate, Green Construction paper
To make the octopus:
Peel a Banana to 3/4 of its size. With out disturbing the peel, Cut out the white part.
Using scissors make slits in the peel to get 8 tentacles .
Draw eyes and mouth. Tickly octopus ready!
Play around with the octopus and the Goldfish friends.
Cj made speedy, twirly motions with the octopus. She also wanted to create page of the Eel and the octopus from the book, we just played along! We had fun time!
She was so thrilled of her octopus that she showed it to Dad as soon he came back from work.
