Meet the Octopus! The balloon octopus. Well, in fact two. Since I have two girls.
Miss 4 saw an octopus project on the TV this morning and asked straight away if we could make one. So we did. Her sister displayed a complete lack of interest until after dinner. I thought that the very last balloon I had was black, so it was a pleasant surprise to find this lovely purple colour emerge as it was blown up. And the fact you could see the octopus’ eyes was a complete bonus.
A balloon octopus is strangely aerodynamic. The girls had lots of fun tonight, and had to be persuaded that sleeping with an octopus would be a much better idea if they were not made out of balloons.
