My Creative Space

Today’s creative space is *not* a sneak peek of my Christmas knitting. Instead it’s a cute project for the girls.

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.

    Wow, am certainly surprised to hear about the aerodynamic properties that these balloon octopi have… Looks like your girls had a great time playing 🙂
