Our octopuses went visiting...

Last week, we learned about octopuses.  Yes, that's really the "official" plural, not octopi.  We learned that they have eight arms to help them find their food, and the move about by jet propulsion -- they take in water and then squirt it out so quickly that it moves them where they want to go. 

We also made adorable little octopuses.  Today, we are guests of The Usual Mayhem, and you can see there how we made them.  Our thanks to Erin for hosting us, and her patience when our little octopuses got lost without a map. 

I'll leave you with a little poem that we learned as well --

The Octopus

Tell me, O Octopus, I begs
Is those things arms, or is they legs?
I marvel at thee, Octopus;
If I were thou, I'd call me Us.

Ogden Nash

  1. So cute! I love the poem, too. My son is asking me how the octopuses are made...we might need to make our own. Thanks for stopping by my blog.
