Product Description

An octopus can change its skin color and texture to blend in with its surroundings. This activity is a fun way for little ones to explore this concept. After reading and learning about camouflage, we moved an octopus that I traced onto a transparency around the ocean scene, trying to blend it in with the different objects in the environment. Then, we learned some interesting facts about the octopus. We finally ended by placing the octopus outlines on scrapbook paper with simple designs and trying to color them to match - just like camouflage.
