DLTK's Crafts for Kids
Octopus Sock Craft

Contributed by Leanne Guenther

The project requires either sewing or hot glue skills.  A child of age 9 or so could do the project with adult supervision.  Younger children can help stuff the project and would love to receive it as a gift from an older sibling, parent or grandparent.

You could put in rice instead of stuffing to make this more of a beanbag.

This is a terrific first sewing project for children.  If using it as such, I recommend having the children sew the body pieces together using a running stitch or a blanket stitch and then glue the remaining pieces together.  I would fill with pillow stuffing instead of rice ... stuffing won't leak out as easily if the child didn't keep their stitches tight enough.

Pam, from the Cornerstone Academy, adds:  The socktopus can also be used as a door stop if a few clean rocks are intermingled with stuffing.
