Inky the Octopus, Recycled Art

I'm getting a lot of mileage out of empty toilet tissue rolls! Today, I made an octopus for my daughter from a T.P. roll with tissue paper "ink", which is tucked inside until pushed out through the roll from the other side. I made the "ink" by cutting strips from a folded rectangle of blue tissue paper(dollar store) and taping it onto the inside of the roll.

The printable penguin is from here. He is taped to another T.P. roll which I use as a stand for cut-and-paste play items.

These are really cute. I am sure you can imagine just how many toilet paper rolls we have here with all my children. This is an ideal craft for Christopher to do.
