た:おどるたこ Dancing Octopus

23 Jun

I have an easy, fast, and fun craft for you today! たこ (octopus) is an animal that’s very popular in Japan (but not so much in the USA). Today we will make a Dancing Tako (おどるたこ).

You could make several and have them all dance to music at the same time!

HERE is a version using a paper cup, from みらい子育てネット山形.

This illustrator has created another unique version HERE (from gen graphics– scroll to the middle of the page).

Have fun! More tako-san activities coming soon!
