This octopus is a great project and I think it would be so much fun to make! And what a great way to teach a kid how to braid and to practice uniformity and patience and hen seeing pride in their finished project! You could also create a two toned creature or even multi colored by varying the yearn colors! Add some pretty sequins or beads along the legs for the 'suckers' in addition to the pretty bows! So cute!
