This was a fun project the kids did over spring break last year and I wanted to share it again with you. This project was also super cheap, I think the entire project might have cost us $5 if that.
Here is what you need:
Some clay pots and a saucer
foam (for the octopus)
pipe cleaners (for spider)
Here is what you do:
Paint your clay pots
Let it dry and add any designs you want - we went with polka dots.
For the spider we used the saucer as well. we added a smile and some googly eyes. We then used the pipe cleaners (bent in half and glued in place) for the legs.
For the octopus we added a smile and eyes and then cut the legs out of black foam. We also cut a circle out of the foam the same width as the pot to attach the legs to and then glued that to the pot.
This was a lot of fun and I love how cute these little guys came out.
