Footprint crafts from A - Z featuring o,p & q

We have been having a great time working on our footprint animals. I am excited to finish all of them from A-Z. They will make a lovely addition to our daughter’s new playroom in our new house. Our latest crafts are O for octopus, P for panda & Q for quail. Because of her new-found obsession with the movie ‘Home’, we made one bonus footprint craft inspired by the movie.

Press it onto a piece of paper.

Paper Plate Octopus

Paper Plate Octopus


Tonight Miss Mai asked if we could make an octopus project. Since I never say no to craft time, I of course said yes. We decided that we would make our craft out of paper plates. I gathered all of our supplies. We went to our favorite craft spot in the kitchen to get started, but then she changed her mind & decided she wanted to draw her octopus instead. Her picture came out great & immediately went up on the fridge, but this left me with all the fixings for an octopus.


Since I had all of the supplies out, I made our craft by myself.

This is a cute & easy craft for kids of all ages.


What you will need:

Paper Plate

Foam or Construction Paper


Googly Eyes




Paint your plate in the color of your choice for your octopus. Paint some oval shapes to the top third of the plate.


Layer two pieces of foam or construction paper on top of each other & cut out 4 different shapes for octopus tentacles. This will give you 4 sets with 8 tentacles total.


Dot on suction cups to the bottom of your tentacles.


Glue your tentacles in place below the paper plate.


Add googly eyes & draw in a mouth. Let your craft dry. What a cute little guy!
