Tonight I made this cute octopus using the same yarn that I had used to make the bunny yesterday (Vanna's Choice yarn). This is another free pattern from lionbrand.com. It was very easy to make. It is a Christmas present for my 3 year old son.
While at the craft store today, there were some fun pre-painted (some have felt on them) wooden cut outs. I let my toddler pick out the ones that he wanted, and I picked out a few as well. Then we glued some magnets to them. I love having fun magnets on my fridge. Plus these magnets are pretty strong.
