Hello nursery meet Octavia Octopus, I made this number ball game using 2 cardboard boxes and my paints. First I cut out 8 holes, did you know that an octopus has 8 arms, I wish I had 8 arms sometimes. I then chose which colours I wanted to use – pink for the octopus and blue for the spotty pattern. I then wrote numbers 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 beside each arm – the numbers are your score when you get a ball into the hole. I used my dogs bouncy balls and some socks to throw and try and get into the holes. I played with my family and we had a competition to see who could get the highest score.
Can you make an Octopus ball game? Or maybe you can design another ocean creature maybe a shark or a starfish. Think about the colours to use, how many holes? What size do you make the holes – smaller holes make it more of a challenge. ( you may need help from a grown up to cut out the holes) Once you can throw the balls in stand back even further to make it harder. Please remember to share your photographs on Twitter.
