Curl the strips, curling half the lenght. There are many methods for curling, younger kids can wrap them around a marker while older kids can use scissors to curl the strips of paper.

Add some glue to the uncurled part of the strips and stick it inside the paper roll. Do the same with all paper strips. This little paper roll is starting to look like an octopus isn’t it?


Glue on two eye stickers and draw a line for the mouth.
