    Start with the tentacles by taking one of each of your colors and bending them in half.

Fold 1 white and 1 blue pipe cleaner in half
Combine these two pipe cleaners together by nestling the white pipe into the blue. They should be perpendicular to each other and nestled tightly.

Eight tentacles
Group the 8 tentacles together, making sure all the pointy sides are on one end. Where the tentacles remain untwisted, tie the group of tentacles together by tightly wrapping one pipe cleaner around them and securing it in place (to secure it you can use one of the pointy ends of the tentacles). We are going to cover this up later, so it doesn’t matter if you use a white or blue pipe cleaner for this step.

This pipe cleaner octopus can be created in 1 hour. It is a simple project for kids with clear, step-by-step instructions and pictures
